Mercy Gospel Reflection: Sep 11


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

11 September  – 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, we reflect once again on the story of the prodigal son.

We are reminded of God’s great love and desire to have us with him.

It challenges us to ask the question, do I love my spouse with the deep love that the father has for his son in this parable?

Are there times when I’ve held out from giving my spouse the kind of forgiveness that the father has in this story?

What is Christ asking you to do this week for your marriage?
