Day 18: When God Ran

This morning's gospel is the parable of the Prodigal Son.  Since it's the gospel in two weeks, I just dwelled on five words this morning at Mass: "He ran to his son...(Luke 15:20)."  All we have to do is give God a small opening to our heart, some semblance of repentance, and he will go running to meet us instead of waiting for us to come home.  This is our Lenten journey. It is opening our hearts just a bit to allow our Father to come running towards us to hold us in an eternal embrace.
