No one will ever love us or care for us the way God our Father does. In spite of our tantrums, disobedience, pride, obstinacy, sheer sinfulness, He waits patiently and lovingly for our return to Him so that He may shower us with His love and in abundance.

No sin……..NO SIN is too great that He will not forgive if we turn to Him with a truly contrite heart. Like a loving parent who lost His/Her child would leave ALL behind, to go in search of the child; Our loving Shepherd Who loves us most, will come for us when we are lost. All we ever need to do is to cry out to Him with our own free will. All our fears we can lay to rest and as we lay in pitch darkness waiting, His light will fill our hearts. He hears us and He is there to carry us home….

O most holy sacred heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you, and with lively sorrow for my sins I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, Good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you. Protect me in the midst of danger. Comfort me in my afflictions. Give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.   

GOSPEL Luke 15:3–7

Jesus addressed this parable to the Pharisees and scribes: “What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety–nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety–nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.”
