William James Webb, The Lost Sheep, Manchester City Galleries, 1864

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Romans 14:7-12
Responsorial Psalm: 27:1-4, 13-14
Gospel: Luke 15:1-10

“Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost (NRSV, Luke 15:6b).”

Let us pray.

Father, No matter how many times I turn away from you in sin, your Word is always present to me offering forgiveness and reconciliation in the Holy Spirit. I need not even ask. Your love pursues me without fail. How can I resist you when you demand nothing in return, only that I accept your divine life into my own and then grow in it at every moment?

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
