THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK


img127
“Only by experiencing forgiveness, by recognizing one is loved with a freely given love, a love greater than our wretchedness but also greater than our own merit, do we at last enter a truly filial and free relationship with God. Let us meditate on this parable of the Prodigal Son. Let us compare ourselves to the two sons and, especially, contemplate the Heart of the Father. Let us throw ourselves into his arms and be regenerated by his merciful love.” Pope Benedict XVI
