THE  COUNTRY  BOY – Emly Players

‘The Country Boy’ by John Murphy will be staged in the Parish Hall on this Sat/Sun 9th/10th at 8.15pm. All proceeds donated to the Emly School building fund. All support will be appreciated.



Like many a parable, the story in today’s gospel makes its point in what seems to be unfair: the spendthrift son is rewarded and the elder son is hurt and angry. Jesus is telling us that love is a free gift, not something we earn by our goodness. After some time the younger son ‘came to himself’ and returned home. The older son resented the welcome given to the younger son after his wandering and dissolute life. This contrasts with the welcome the father gave the younger son. Jesus reminds us that God, the Father loves and forgives.
