Today's Gospel reading at Mass was the well-known Prodigal Son parable from Luke 15. It's such a beautiful story depicting God's love for us. Books have been written based upon this story. It richly provides so much we could reflect upon. What struck me this time was what the father said to the older son near the end: "My son, you are here with me always; everything I have is yours." To those of us who already belong to the Father, even if nothing special happens to us, we know that God's love is ever present and most of all, Jesus is ours.
