Going Home is a reflection on the parable of the prodigal son in the light of the teaching of Catherine de Hueck Doherty. Fr. Denis Lemieux shows us the astonishing power of the parable to heal the wounds of sin and division in our lives and set us anew on the journey to the Father.
"Mercy—as Christ presented it in the parable of the prodigal son—has the interior form of the love that in the New Testament is called agape. This love is able to reach down to every prodigal son, to every human misery, and above all to every form of moral misery, to sin." — John Paul II in Dives in Misericordia
