The Sunday Word

Image result for prodigal son

It is not too late to prepare for tomorrow when we celebrate the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Gospel pericope is the rich story of the Prodigal Son. Here are the final verses that could be used to prepare for tomorrow's liturgy.

So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him. Then the son said to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.” But the father said to his slaves, “Quickly, bring out a fresh pair of pants — the best ones — and put them on him; put a ring on his finger and Nikes on his feet. And get the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!” And they began to celebrate.
