Serving the Word: Lk 15:1-3.11-32

Luke 15:1-3.11-32:
“We are going to have a feast, a celebration because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life; he was lost, and is found.”

A few days ago, we mentioned the gospel of today and said the following:
In this passage of the Gospel, so well-known to all of us, appear different people:
– A father who is constantly waiting for his son,
– A son who leaves his father’s house,
– A jealous and complaining brother,
– A team of servants…
They all participate, almost all pronounce words, make gestures, express feelings…
If you had to choose one of the protagonists, which one would you choose?
I would not choose any of these characters as my protagonist. For me the true protagonist of this parable is the MERCY of the Father.
That MERCY is:
– The true home to which the absent son returns,
– The real lap in which he is welcomed,
– The true heart in which feels loved and wanted,
– The true banquet in which the lost son will find joy again.
Throughout the day today read as many times as you can this parable in its entirety. Savour it.
And feel like that prodigal son immersed in the infinite mercy of your Father.
Return. Be reconciled with your Father God. The Father is always waiting and expecting your return.
Good day.
