On the parable of the Prodigal Son:

On the parable of the Prodigal Son:

In all scripture you will not find a more striking account of our Lord's understanding and unfathomable love, than in the parable of the Prodigal Son. In fact, this parable is sometimes referred to as the "greatest short story ever written" for that very reason. Unfortunately, its ascribed title doesn't paint the fullness of the story as it shifts the focus to the son who lived a debauched life. Renaming it the "Parable of the Forgiving Father" would be far more accurate; for the Father (and his unconditional forgiveness) is the true centerpiece of the story, flanked as he is on either side by his two very different sons.

Fr. John
