+346+ The Older Brother of the Prodigal Son (24th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 24th Sunday. After abandoning his father and exhausting his inheritance, the prodigal son discovers his greatest possession: the love of his Father. The older son has been like a faithful Catholic, sitting the in pew, following the rules, but somehow never discovering his Father’s love. If we want to bring people back, we must share with them the Good News of God’s love. But first we must come to discover it for ourselves. (15 Sep 2013)
