  • A Lenten meditation by Desmond O'Donnell OMI, in Compass - a Review of Topical Theology, Spring 2007, Vol 41 No 3 - A meditation on the story of the Prodigal Son:

    COUNSELLOR: Could you tell me about this?
    CLIENT: You read the story in the local paper about my son going off and coming back years later.
    COUNSELLOR: Do you think the story as told is accurate?
    CLIENT: Yes it is, but most people lost sight of me and my feelings in the story. They speak only of ‘a prodigal son’. They concentrate on guilt, blame and forgiveness.
