Father Roger Rouleau gives his video reflection on the readings for the 4th Sunday of Lent. He explores this upcoming Sunday’s scriptural message of joy and rejoicing relating to the the Prodigal Son in the Gospel.
As Lent approaches, Father Roger reminds us that we should be happy, because we are loved and forgiven. We can focus on remembering that our Lenten penances are not meant to burden us, but are meant to stir within us – through sorrow for our sins – a greater appreciation and love for the Lord.
Father Roger is the pastor of both Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, Maskwacis and Sacred Heart, Wetaskiwin.
Living in the Word (Reflections on Holy Scriptures) is a series of bi-weekly reflections on Holy Scriptures by Priests and Religious in the Archdiocese of Edmonton.
