HE AROSE AND WENT TO HIS FATHER
We should never close the door, God desires that none of His children should be separated from their true home and family.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
What's worst than being separated, shut out from one's loved ones, home, and friends? The pain of separation can only be surpassed by the joy of the homecoming and reunion. We should never close the door, God desires that none of His children should be separated from their true home and family.
 
Today's Gospel, is a story about life. It is a story that makes us think every time we read it. This story has something for everybody: for those who have strayed in their lives and wonder if they would be welcome in the father's house. It has something for those who have returned to be met on the way with mercy and joy where doors don't close. It also has something for those who feel they have always been the good and dutiful ones and who feel miffed when the black sheep returns to such a fine reception. The point is, at one time or another we all find ourselves portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son. And the Father is eager to welcome us inside where we belong. It's a day to ask ourselves, "What's preventing you and me from entering the father's house in joy?" and to make haste to let go of everything that keeps me from finding my way home, finding true reconciliation!
 
Our heavenly Father keeps all promises even when we don't and God is waiting to be reconciled with us. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord!
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Have you experienced God's prodigal love - the all-consuming, forgiving love so vividly described in today's Gospel? When have you felt the most joyful in the knowledge of God's love?
 
Saint Paul tells us that "whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away." What part of yourself do you feel is most a part of your new creation in Jesus Christ?
