Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
March 22, A.D. 2003
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Today's Gospel tells us about a man who forgave his long-lost son who,
being down on his luck, has unexpectedly returned to his family. A
celebration is planned, joy abounds; yet, there is disappointment from
the elder son who challenges his father's actions.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He loves us! How
wonderful to know that the Son of Man, born of a Virgin, became man
and showed us how to love -- and to forgive. Yet, we have division in
even the best of families, hurts from our childhood, lack of love in
our lives, even separation that never reunites us until the death of a
Luke recounts for us the abundance of God's love, mercy, forgiveness
and most of all His compassion and kindness. This is a good reminder
for us during this second week of Lent. It is never easy for us to say
"I'm sorry, I was wrong, please forgive me." It is so easy to continue
to live our lives, ignoring the compassion shown in this Scripture.
O Lord, you are kind and merciful.
Help me to be like You.
