Bishop Joseph N. Perry talks about God's forgiveness and the story of the prodigal son.
Fourth Sunday of Lent, Year C
Chicago’s Auxiliary Bishop Joseph N. Perry takes the gospel for this Fourth Sunday of Lent and demonstrates how God is reaching out to us with His forgiveness. In his 10-minute homily he relates the story of the prodigal son to each and every one of us and shows how this lesson from an ancient culture is just as relevant to us today as it was then. In the question-and-answer segment Bishop Perry helps us understand how we should deal with our feelings of “unfairness” when we hear the story of the prodigal son. This week’s musical selection is “Bring Us Home” by GIA Artist Paul Tate.
