Good News! God is Coming for You! – Dec 06 – Homily – Fr Terrance
Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Dec 06, 2022, on the parable of lost sheep and how he left the 99 to find the one lost. Father gives the many interpretations of this parable. They all point to how God has a huge heart for problem children and has more joy in finding that one sheep than in the 99 that remained. For such sheep, like us, he was willing to die for his sheep. God rejoices to the same degree as it cost him on the cross.
JPII 1979 homily imitates the good shepherd need spiritual charity to save souls. This is our primary mission, the salt of the Church.
five aspects of God's love in this parable: individual, patient, seeking, rejoicing, protecting
