Daily Mentation Question for the Spiritual Progression Path

Have I ever celebrated the return of a lost article more than I celebrated the return of someone who wronged me?

Daily Quote for the Spiritual Progression Path

"Grace is what God gives us when we don't deserve, and mercy is when God doesn't give us what we do deserve."

~Anonymous

Daily Affirmation for the Spiritual Progression Path

My faith stimulates Grace.

Daily Prayer for the Spiritual Progression Path

For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.

Father, today's reading below about the prodigal son is a fresh reminder that my salvation does not come through my works but by Your Grace, meaning I did nothing to deserve it except be born and hold tight to my Faith. Boasting, proclaiming my works and saying what I think I deserve just like the older son did is not 'the way'. The Pharisees and scribes believed that it was through works based salvation that they would enter Your Kingdom and so Jesus was teaching against their tradition. Under their law, what the prodigal son had done was shameful and disrespectful to the father and would have certainly guaranteed that he be disinherited and stoned to death rather than be embraced and celebrated upon his return. Somehow deep down inside, the prodigal son had the faith to know that his father would allow him back into his life. It was faith that brought grace upon him. Sometimes I celebrate the return of a lost article more than I celebrate the return of someone who once wronged me. Father, thank You for continuing to Love me through some of the things that I do and for forgiving me so easily and completely. Thank You! All of this and more You do for me through Your Grace, just because and even when I don't deserve it. Today's reading reminds me of another reading in Ephesians 2:8-9 -- "For it is by Grace you have been saved, through Faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast." It is my faith that stimulates Your Grace, just like the prodigal son.

Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~

Daily Scripture for the Spiritual Progression Path

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke

Luke 15:1-3, 11-32

1 The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Him,

2 but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them."

3 So to them He addressed this parable.

11 Then He said, "A man had two sons,

12 and the younger son said to his father, 'Father, give me the share of your estate that should come to me.' So the father divided the property between them.

13 After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation.

14 When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need.

15 So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine.

16 And he longed to eat his fill of the pods on which the swine fed, but nobody gave him any.

17 Coming to his senses he thought, 'How many of my father's hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger.

18 I shall get up and go to my father and I shall say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.

19 I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as you would treat one of your hired workers."'

20 So he got up and went back to his father. While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him, and was filled with compassion. He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him.

21 His son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son.'

22 But his father ordered his servants, 'Quickly bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.

23 Take the fattened calf and slaughter it. Then let us celebrate with a feast,

24 because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.' Then the celebration began.

25 Now the older son had been out in the field and, on his way back, as he neared the house, he heard the sound of music and dancing.

26 He called one of the servants and asked what this might mean.

27 The servant said to him, 'Your brother has returned and your father has slaughtered the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.'

28 He became angry, and when he refused to enter the house, his father came out and pleaded with him.

29 He said to his father in reply, 'Look, all these years I served you and not once did I disobey your orders; yet you never gave me even a young goat to feast on with my friends.

30 But when your son returns who swallowed up your property with prostitutes, for him you slaughter the fattened calf.'

31 He said to him, 'My son, you are here with me always; everything I have is yours.

32 But now we must celebrate and rejoice, because your brother was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.'"
