The Prodigal Son: Painting: Ronald Raab, CSC

Draw us closer, O God, to your fidelity and kindness. Receive our foibles, mistakes and heartaches, and our unfortunate decisions and bundles of regrets. Embrace us when we cannot even face ourselves. Give us courage when we are weak-kneed and haughty, when pride gets the best of us. Bring us closer to your heart in this Year of Mercy, especially when we believe that we are self-sufficient and sure-footed. Amen
