Daily Prayer

"“But it was only right we should celebrate and rejoice because your brother was dead and has come to life, he was lost and is found.’’" Luke 15 : 32

We are all familiar with this parable. Rembrandt ‘s RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON’’ outlines the younger son’s attitude of peace.  He arrives home, after a long absence, in torn clothes and broken sandals.  He could almost be one of the homeless. His father embraces him wholeheartedly without a word of recrimination. The love of the Father also reaches out to the faithful son who has problems,  understanding the Father’s love.

Prayer Jesus, help us to understand the infinite love of the heavenly Father for all his children. Help us to come to an understanding of your immense love. Let us not judge by appearances but to see others in the light of your immense love. Amen
