DG BookGospel: Luke 15:1-3, 11-32
Meanwhile tax collectors and sinners were seeking the company of Jesus, all of them eager to
hear what he had to say. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law frowned at this, muttering, “This

man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” So Jesus told them this parable: “There was a man with two
sons. The younger said to his father, ‘Give me my share of the estate.’ So the father divided his property between them.

 

Reflection:

 

Our strength can be our greatest shame. The strength of the
younger son was his sensuousness, the ability to celebrate life. However,
it was an unredeemed eros, harming himself and everyone around. When
he returns, trying (clumsily) to be more rational, the Father waves away
his reasoning and orders a feast, the language of eros that makes his son
feel at home; and in the process teaches him how to celebrate life
redemptively. The elder son was all reason, but unredeemed as well,
only serving to alienate himself from others. With him, the Father
engages in a redeemed reasoning, teaching him to heal wounds and
build bridges.
