Come Home to the Father (#643, 24th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) • God desires to soak us in His mercy. When we come to our senses and return to our Father, our Father runs to meet us. This story is all about us. It tells us that we have a Father who loves us, and he won’t stop giving us stuff. Sometimes we get stuck on the stuff and won’t come home to the Father. So come to Confession and the Father will run to you and soak you in his mercy.

Point to Ponder: Listen to Fr. Mike Schmitz tell the airplane story himself.

Point to Discuss: Have you had a good experience of Confession? Tell someone about how it felt to be forgiven.
