Prodigal Son Sunday

Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters, bless.

This coming Sunday we are reading and celebrating our Lord's parable of the Prodigal Son. St. Nicholai of South Canaan (Homilies I, pg 104) speaks of the perennial value of this clear look into human nature and God's love.

In the parable of the Prodigal Son, the Lord Jesus has given us a picture of real, divine love, painted in such clear colours that it pulsates with life before our eyes, as this world does when, after the darkness of night, the sun shines forth. Two thousand years have not dulled the colours of this picture, and they will never be dulled as long as there are mend on earth, and God's love for them. On the contrary, the more sinful men become, the more vivid is this picture.

In Christ,
