Watch Fr. Michael Marcantoni as he speaks about the parable of the prodigal son.

Our calling to forgiveness, to reconciliation is not conditioned by how others act. Our responsibility to mend what is broken in our lives, family and community lies with us irrespective of how others respond. His sons’ missteps do nothing to change what this great father will do for them. Too often we ask the wrong question, instead of asking “what can I get”, ask “what can I give.”

“But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”
