"Celebrate with me for I have found my lost sheep. Celebrate with me for I have found the coin I lost. " Luke 15 : 6

The theme in today’s reading was “Rejoicing” in the finding of what was lost. Most of us at some points in our lives lose dearly-held possessions . We are  dismayed. Then after a clear search when we discover the lost object or document we are overjoyed. So it seems with the Lord as these Lukan parables were used to illustrate God’s profound joy in bringing back the errant sinner who was wandering from the fold,or welcoming the long-lost adventurer back to his Kingdom, and no questions asked!!

Prayer

Lord give us the courage to go on searching for Truth when we have lost our way, and let us not judge those who because of your Mercy bypass us on the road to your Kingdom. Amen
