Sep 12 – Homily – Fr. Dominic: Merciful Parables

Click to Play

Homily #100912 ( 23min) Play – In today’s Gospel we have the parables of mercy, the lost coin, the lost sheep, and to top it off, the parable of the prodigal son. Fr Dominic, during his first homily as the guardian of the friary here in Griswold, emphasizes the greatness of this mercy that is almost too good to be true if it weren’t spoken by Truth Himself. We need mercy and, fortunately, God wants to give it if we humble ourselves with true contrition for our sins and a firm resolve to reform our lives and persevere in this. This firmness of our resolve is the necessary and only worthy response to this great mercy that our great God is offering.  He also exhorts us to show mercy to others and pray for each other and to make use of the sacrament of mercy, that is, Confession, and the intercession of the saints. All of which is consistent with a firm resolve to amend our lives.
