The event of the Passover celebrated the Hebrews’ freedom from their slavery in Egypt.
Passover also celebrates freedom from the slavery of sin. For we Christians, this is the call: to live a life “fully alive,” free of addiction and self-centered egotism. This is the story of the Prodigal Son—the evocative parable that speaks up and down the generations. It’s the story of us all when we selfishly grasp out of concern only for ourselves instead of honoring God, the giver of the gift and life itself.
It’s also the story of conversion and the fact that God never gives up on us. He’s always scanning the horizon, waiting for us to come home.
Everything is grace and everything is a gift.
Come and encounter His grace at the weekend Mass times where Father James is preaching or stop by and visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
To prepare our hearts to come to Holy Mass this weekend, consider watching the clip in the Flocknote email from the award-winning series Catholicism on the themes within the Prodigal Son: In the story of the Prodigal Son, who do I most identify with? When have I been the Son? When have I been the Father? When have I been the Older Brother? Why do you think Jesus spoke in parables? Why did He tell stories instead of simply telling people facts about God?
