In today’s Gospel, we hear three parables, all about things that are lost and found followed by the very human story of the Lost Son. The three parables of things lost and found emphasise the unending forgiveness of God and his rejoicing when we return to him. We are encouraged to search, to be ‘seekers’, to discover the lost and, when we need it, to let ourselves be found.
