From the April 1939 issue of The Christian Science Journal

THE parable of the ten virgins, as told in the twenty-fifth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, contains a wonderful lesson, which can be used very advantageously in meeting the problems and opportunities of today. In this parable the five wise virgins kept their lamps trimmed and their vessels well supplied with oil in anticipation of the bridegroom's coming.
