Encounter the Merciful Messiah.

Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the 4th Sunday in Lent, Year C. The readings for the Mass are from Joshua, Psalm 34, 2 Corinthians and the Gospel of Luke. Today in the Gospel Jesus directs his parable of the “prodigal son” to the Pharisees and scribes. The story reminds us of a most merciful father who patiently waits for the return of his lost son. We too, have such a loving father, Our Heavenly Father, who awaits our “yes” and our return to his most compassionate heart. May we reflect upon the unconditional Love of God for us and return to his heart today. Now, join us for this reflection with Dina Marie.
