“’But now we must celebrate and rejoice, because your brother was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found,’ (Luke 15:32).”
Daily Lent Reflection
Today we have the story of the prodigal son/loving father. It is a familiar narrative. The elder son is jealous of his younger brother and his father’s generosity. Are we the same? Do we forget the abundance God showers upon us and the great mercy shown us throughout our lives? We are called to respond with great mercy towards others.
Daily Lent Challenge
Today I will ask myself if I have I ever felt resentment towards someone because I didn’t think they deserved to be rewarded? I will try to feel pleased for that person and give thanks to God for their gifts.
