In this reflection for the Fourth Sunday of Lent 2022, Fr. Erik Arnold reminds us that no matter how bad our sin is, the Father is always watching, and waiting for us to come Home.
The parable in this week’s readings can leave us asking some really good questions. Why does God let me leave home? Am I happy when I leave? And can I really come home? This week’s reflection briefly looks at each of these important questions.
As we continue through this season of Lent, let’s ask the Lord to give us a great trust and confidence in his mercy.
