In our journey towards conversion, we can identify ourselves with either the wayward son or the self-righteous one, both needing the mercy and compassion of God. On this Fourth Sunday of Lent, let us continue to reflect on the generosity God has for us. In spite of our shortcomings, God is still willing to forgive us, to embrace us, to wait for us patiently, and to welcome us back into His loving arms.
May our Lenten journey become a fruitful and significant move towards our own conversion. Let us remember that true love is forgiving, and that there is no better way to experience that love than to receive God's forgiveness.
