Personal Reflection On Today’s Gospel

Parable of the lost sheep

 

There is nothing that we can do, that our Father will not forgive us for, do we realise just how much He loves us?
Do we want to be found?

Let us pray….

Heavenly Father we pray for mercy and forgiveness for ourselves and our loved ones. We pray also for the conversion of sinners, especially for the lost sheep among our friends and family. Soften all our hearts to Your great and wonderful love and by your Grace, our advent journey will be a fruitful and joyous one at the end, through Christ our Lord. Amen
Today’s Gospel – Matthew 18:12-14

12 Jesus said to his disciples: “What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? 13 And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. 14 In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.”
