Seventeenth Sunday of Luke: The Prodigal Son
Our purpose, O people, is to know the power of God’s goodness, for when the prodigal abandoned his sin, he hastened to the refuge of his Father. That Good One embraced him and welcomed him. He killed the fatted calf and celebrated with heavenly joy. Let us learn from this example to offer thanks to the Father who loves all people, and to the Victim, the Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Saviour of our souls.
