Dear Friend in the Lord,
Precious Child: Each person is a precious child of God; more so, when we are lost, confused and in the darkness of pain, division and sin. It is God’s Will that we live in peace because our “darkness and sin” cause God’s pain and suffering. Pray for the gift of conversion, and renewal of faith in God.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus spoke this parable to the scribes and Pharisees: ‘Which one of you with a hundred sheep, if he lost one, would fail to leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the missing one till he found it? And when he found it, would he not joyfully take it on his shoulders and then, when he got home, call together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, “Rejoice with me, I have found my sheep that was lost.” ’
In the same way, I tell you, there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner repenting than over ninety-nine upright people who have no need of repentance.
