The Parable of the Prodigal Son

Luke 15:1-3, 1-32

The younger son offended his father.
Both of them needed reconciliation.
There is forgiveness and a fatted calf.
The older son is selfish and jealous.
He also needs reconciliation.

The Navarre Bible notes are instructive.
“Meditation on this passage will help
Us to be optimistic (and) confident.”

In the relation to the parable of
The prodigal son, I’ve been the younger
Son. I have been rebellious. I have been
The older son. I have been resentful.

Now my goal is to be the father. For-
give others as I have been forgiven.
