Most homilies about today’s Gospel focus on the wayward son and the generous mercy of the father. And, well they might. But most of us here at Mass today generally don’t sink to depths of the younger son and try to imitate the conduct of the father. We are more likely to be like the older son in our behavior father.
We are dutiful in our relationship with God, serving God and building God’s kingdom on earth, tilling the soil and tending the vineyard in obedience to God’s commands. But we can be resentful of those who wander off, wasting God’s gifts on their own pursuits. How do we react when we see them return at Easter and/or Christmas? With joy/ or with anger that they are sitting in “our” seat in the pews?
