"Prodigal son's father"

     We, the Catholics have a complex of that non-prodigal son.  He had a grievance against his father for taking back the son who had wasted his whole fortune, for preparing the feast to celebrate his return.  And we, the Catholics, would like to own God, to take His entire love.  We are not readily accepting the fact that God loves also non-Catholics.  Not only the Christians of other denominations, but also people of other religions, even the non-believers.  We think that only we should be entitled to have a place in His heart.
     Meanwhile, God is Love.  All people who love can reach Him, no matter if they are baptized in the Catholic Church or not.

Fr. M.M.
