Today’s liturgy is a mixture of joy and sorrow, an amalgam of love and pain through which God expresses his love to a humanity that is very slow at understanding it. The purposes of all this dreadful and remorse igniting liturgy is to evoke in us believers a sense of guilt for our sins that continually condemn the Christ to crucifixtion.

Return home beloved sinner

Today we celebrate the fourth Sunday of the season of Lent also called the Laetare Sunday. The readings invite us to rejoice because of the mercy and love of the father who treats us tenderly, not according to how we deserve to be treated because of our sins but who, because of his mercy, welcomes us with a fatherly embrace and perdons our sins. The beauty of this parable from the word of God lies in its capacity to speak to us and touch us in the different niches that we create for ourselves.
