PRODIGAL – spending money or resources freely and recklessly; wastefully extravagant. Having or giving something on a lavish scale.
In this talk Fr. John flips the story of the prodigal son on its head and discusses how the one in this story who is truly prodigal is the father. And how what he is prodigal with, or liberal with, or wasteful with, is his mercy.
Fr. John implores us to contemplate the Scripture laid out during this talk. We must reconsider the Sacrament of Reconciliation and through it, the Father’s mercy in our lives, especially during this Advent and Christmas season.
