In the Gospel story of the Prodigal Son, we see the depth of a father’s compassion for his penitent son. This is how much God loves us, too: So much that he years and waits to welcome us home with joy when we return to him in repentance.
What conversion of mind, heart, and life is the Lord asking of me ?
When have I refused to extend forgiveness to someone who hurts me ?
What grudges am I carrying ?
Let us pray that we may come to our senses, make our way back to the Father, like the Prodigal Son and seek his mercy and forgiveness.
