Sunday of the Prodigal Son
February 24


Kontakion — Tone 3


I have recklessly forgotten Your glory, O Father;
and among sinners I have scattered the riches which You had given me.
Therefore, I cry to You like the Prodigal:
“I have sinned before You, O compassionate Father;
receive me a penitent and make me as one of Your hired servants.”

•    sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community,
•    providing for education of the Faith,
•    engaging in philanthropy,
•    being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and,
•    being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
