Homily #100314 ( 17min) Play - Today is Laetare Sunday, the Fourth Sunday in Lent, which is like Gaudete Sunday in Advent, a day of joy in the midst of a season of penance.  Common to both these days are the joyful rose vestments and Fr. Bonaventure relates this to the Gospel of the day which is the parable of of the Prodigal Son and how the son is robed in festive vestments due to the father's joy in the return of his wayward son. Fr. Bonaventure highlights the importance of repentance if we fall and how all penance leads to joy if we persevere to the end.
