The purpose of this series is to introduce appropriate topics from the Gospel, which incorporate critical values we face in the digital age.The Daily Gospel series follows the Catholic Church’s liturgical calendar and seeks to offer small portions of the Gospel on a daily basis.

The Daily Gospel has been at the heart of the Catholic Church for many centuries, but we have now entered a digital age. This has not changed the desire the faithful have for listening to the Gospel, but only the medium by which they find the word of God and apply it to their lives.

This series of reflections dedicated to the Daily Gospel as given to us by the Catholic Church by the Bishops is hoped to be another means that the faithful can retrieve the Gospel thru various electronic media: Kindle, iPhone, tablets and iPad.In the beginning of this chapter St. Luke places three parables in a row, which show the significance of finding that which was lost and once finding it rejoicing in the find: the lost sheep (Lk.

15:1-7)- the lost coin (Lk. 15:8-10)- lastly, the lost son (Lk 15:11-32) All of these parables echo the response of Jesus to the Pharisees and scribes who were complaining that Jesus was welcoming sinners and even eating with them. Where he Pharisees and scribes see a cause for complaining, Jesus just sees it as being with his Father’s lost children and Jesus is present to reflect the Father’s merciful compassion and love toward sinners.The Two SonsThe tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to him, but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” So to them he addressed this parable.

(Lk. 15:1-3)There was a significant conflict between the Pharisees and the scribes, which began because Jesus was attracting large crowds of the sick and sinners to himself. St. Luke says that the “sinners were all drawing near to listen to him.” You know the feeling, and you’ve probably experienced this attraction to Jesus in your life. You walk into the Church, and you are immediately drawn to the tabernacle. You kneel for a moment as you had intended on walking into the Church but as you kneel something comes over you and you have a change of heart and you realize all the things God does in your life.

You didnt believe that so much time has gone by, and you have failed to spend more time with the Lord in your life. Suddenly your feel overwhelmed by a spirit of gratitude and praise fills your heart. You realize, yes, this is God’s Son who has called you into his presence. You hear the cars passing by outside and people going about their busy schedule just as you are so accustomed to doing and you wonder why is it that it is easier to not show this personal gratitude to Jesus in the tabernacle.
