‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’

Again, welcome to this blog site!  This is for those who feel lost in their relationship with the Lord and their Catholic faith.  We are here to help you as others have helped us when we were among the lost sheep.  They rejoiced when we were found, and we hope to rejoice when you are, too.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep. (Luke 15:1-7)

1          The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to him,

2          but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

3          So to them he addressed this parable.

4          “What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it?

5          And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy

6          and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’

7          I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.
