The Prodigal Son and the Angry Brother


Today’s Gospel...the epic story of welcome, forgiveness, as well as spite and anger from the jealous brother.

we have to look no farther than today’s news to find the ANGRY BROTHER!

V. Putin fits the role.

he is aggrieved that the Russian Empire has lost its status in the world, and he along with it.

and so he wreaks vengeance upon Ukraine.


It is a story as old as today’s Gospel.

O God deliver us from whatever spite, jealousy,or grievance that casts shadows over our own daily lives.
