Today is celebrated – as was yesterday and as will be tomorrow – the Bridegroom Service. Today the liturgical texts refer chiefly to the parable of the Ten Virgins (25: 1-13), which is the general theme of the Bridegroom Service, while also referring to the parable of the Talents (Mt 25: 14-30).
- St John Chrysostom's Homily on Mt 25:1-30 (which comments on both parables) can be read here.
- St Augustine's sermon on the words "Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unot ten virgins" (Mt 25:1) is here.
- St Augustine's sermon on the words "where the slothful servant who would not put out the talent he had received, is condemned" (Mt 25:24) is here.
