Sunday of the Prodigal Son - 02/13/20

On the second preparatory Sunday before the beginning of Great Lent, we are reminded by the reading of the parable concerning the prodigal son, how far we find ourselves from God and of how ready God is to meet us if we only turn from sin and ask his help.  At the vigil service, we hear the hymn "By the waters of Babylon" which reminds us of the time of exile of the Israelites.
