The Most Important Day Of Your Life

3rd Sunday after Pentecost 2016

First Communion Sunday

The parables of the lost sheep and the lost drachma in today’s gospel are meant to remind us of the great efforts Our Lord will take to bring lost souls back to His heavenly home.  Just as human actors in today’s gospel placed a very high value on their lost items, the value which Our Lord places on our souls is infinitely greater.  As Our Lord said, “There will be greater happiness in Heaven over one sinner who repents than over those many who have no need of repentance.”  We should always remember the Mercy Our Lord offers us if only we repent of our wrongdoings.  Today was also First Communion Sunday and we would be remiss if we did not offer congratulations to the First Communicants and their parents as well as continuing prayers for their success in the Faith.
