I’m having a very busy week, so I will leave you with the thought that has been lingering with me for several days now.

So Jesus addressed this parable to them. “What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert, and go after the lost one until he finds it?  And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’  I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people, who have no need of repentance


After this reading, in his homily Father said, something like this.  When you go to confession, it is you, who are the lost sheep.  It is you, who Jesus has found.  It is you, who He carries on His shoulders, with great joy.  It is because of you that heaven celebrates.
