03-18-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 18, 2017
In response to a complaint by the Pharisees, that Jesus was associating with “sinners,” Jesus told a parable about a young rebel who deserted his family for independence.  When everything he did turned sour, the boy returned home begging his father’s forgiveness.  The father hailed his return and celebrated his conversion.  But the older, obedient son was angry about the welcome his father gave to his “rebel, sinner” brother.  The father responded, ‘My son, you are here with me always; everything I have is yours.’  Lk_15:1-3,11-32

How ‘for granted’ do we take EVERYTHING we have, beloved, which has ALL come from our Father?  He is with us always!  And all those who have rebelled, who have disobeyed, and even outright shunned our Lord, how willing are WE to welcome them back into our family?  Maybe it’s even us who are the rebellious ones.  Our Father is waiting for us to come home to Him with open arms.  Maybe it’s time to let go of our rebellious hearts and open them up to the Lord, open them up true LIFE!
