Second Sunday of the Triodion – The Prodigal Son
The Second Preparatory Week before the beginning of Great Lent, is the S UNDAY OF THE P RODIGAL S ON, which IS A CLEAR REMINDER TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US CONCERNING OUR S PIRITUAL LIFE AND THE E TERNAL C ONSEQUENCES OF OUR WORDS , THOUGHTS AND DEEDS THAT WILL EITHER J USTIFY US OR C ONDEMN US . Today we recall the Parable of the Prodigal Son, which was narrated by our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, Who reveals His Divine Truth to us and Who shows us the Way to correct ourselves so that we can become worthy Citizens of His Heavenly Kingdom. The younger Son was bored at home, so having asked for and having received his portion of the Inheritance, he went off into ‘...a Far Country...’ where he squandered all his worldly possessions on riotous self-indulgence. How often do we find ourselves enticed by the ways and pleasures of this world – our hearts being indifferent to the Holy Things of God and our mind wandering lost “... in a Far Country...” – even while we stand in Church, or at Prayer? O UR SELF- INDULGENCE AND LACK OF PERSONAL DISCIPLINE CAUSES US TO BECOME S PIRITUALLY P ARCHED AND STARVED – just like the Prodigal Son who experienced “... a Severe Famine...” in the “... Far Country...” - which is what happens to us WHEN WE ALIENATE OURSELVES FROM THE G RACIOUS L OVE OF OUR H EAVENLY F ATHER. Only when the Prodigal Son was reduced utter destitution and forced to “... feed the swine...” due to his most desperate circumstances, did he finally “... come to himself...” – i.e. regain his Spiritual Sight, which enabled him to recognise his fallen state and Repent. He was able to see what kind of person he had become and he realised how deeply he had wounded his Loving Father. O NLY WHEN THE P RODIGAL S ON WAS WILLING TO ADMIT ALL HIS ERRORS AND HAD PREPARED HIMSELF TO SEEK HIS F ATHER’ S F ORGIVENESS , WAS HE ABLE TO RETURN TO THE S AFETY AND J OY OF HIS F ATHER’ S H OUSE . Furthermore, the fact that he had had to travel a long way without any money in order to return Home, demonstrated his strong resolve to Repent his prodigal lifestyle – for THE MORE EFFORT WE MAKE TO RESOLVE OUR ERRORS , THE MORE DETERMINED WE BECOME TO TRULY R EPENT OUR OWN PRODIGAL LIFESTYLE. W E MUST CONSTANTLY HAVE THE SAME DETERMINATION AND MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO REJECT OUR HABITUAL SINS AND DESTRUCTIVE SELF - INDULGENCE, WHICH DRAG US FURTHER AND FURTHER AWAY FROM G OD AND ALL H IS G OODNESS . Every day – slowly but surely – we must make our Return Journey to God and the Peace and Joy of our True Homeland – our ultimate Destination, which is Eternal Life in His Heavenly Kingdom. A S R EPENTANT SINNERS WE SHALL BE WARMLY WELCOMED H OME WITH INDESCRIBABLE J OY BY OUR H EAVENLY F ATHER W HO SO P ATIENTLY AWAITS OUR S PIRITUAL R ETURN AND W HO CEASELESSLY WATCHES FOR EACH OF US - EVEN WHILE WE ARE STILL A GREAT DISTANCE AWAY FROM H IM . Our Heavenly Father will embrace us warmly and forgive us all our Repented sins. YET IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO US TO COME TO OUR SENSES – TO RECOGNISE AND TO R EPENT OUR DESPERATE, ALIENATED S PIRITUAL C ONDITION , WHICH SHOULD COMPEL US TO TRULY RESOLVE OUR ERRANT WAYS AND – NO MATTER WHAT OBSTACLES MAY THREATEN OUR PROGRESS – TO RETURN TO H IS D IVINE LOVE. However, we cannot take God’s Great Mercy for granted, and His Holy Church makes this clear to us when, next Sunday – Meatfare or Final Judgement Sunday – we are cautioned that our Lord God is not only our Loving Heavenly Father, but He is also our Righteous, Unbiased Judge!
THE YOUNGER, IMMATURE SON’s request for his “portion of goods” (“ousia” = “essence ”) from his father, SIGNIFIES US HUMAN BEINGS RECEIVING OUR FREE WILL (to pick and choose which path to follow) AND OUR RATIONAL MIND GRANTED TO US BY our gracious lord god. Just as Adam did in Paradise, THE YOUNGER SON USED THESE WONDERFUL POSSESSIONS – DIVIN E GIFTS – TO REBEL AGAINST HIS ( HEAVENLY) FATHER.

T HE “ F AR C OUNTRY” to which the prodigal son journeyed represents A LIFE IN EXILE FROM THE G OODNESS AND B LESSINGS OF G OD. W HENEVER WE ARE IN A STATE OF SIN, WE ARE ALIENATED AND EXILED FROM D IVINE G OODNESS – we are a great distance from God. H AVING UNITED HIMSELF TO “ ... A CITIZEN OF THAT COUNTRY...” IS AN OBLIQUE REFERENCE TO THE EVIL ONE WHO IS OBSESSED WITH OUR DESTRUCTION AND ALIENATION FROM G OD AND ALL H IS G OODNESS . S ATAN FIRST TEMPTS US INTO A S PIRITUAL D EATH AND THEN TRIES TO KEEP US THERE AND AWAY FROM G OD’ S B LESSINGS IN A STATE OF S PIRITUAL SLAVERY AND IMPRISONMENT. However, the evil one cannot destroy us himself - and like the Prodigal Son, BY G OD’ S G RACE , WE WILL EVENTUALLY AWAKEN FROM OUR GODLESS STUPOR AND REALISE OUR PREDICAMENT, AND YEARN FOR H IS B LESSINGS AND G OODNESS . BEING IMMERSED IN THE DARKNESS OF SIN, IS EXISTING OUTSIDE OUR NATURAL HUMAN STATE. F EEDING SWINE could rightly be called “Jewish skid row,” because IN SUCH A STATE OF DEBAUCHERY AND SELF - INDULGENCE, WHICH RESULTED IN COMPLETE DESTITUTION – BOTH PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL - THE P RODIGAL S ON COULD NOT POSSIBLY SINK MUCH LOWER. “... WHEN HE CAME TO HIMSELF ...” AS SOON AS WE “ COME TO” OURSELVES – WHEN OUR SANITY IS RESTORED - WE RETURN TO THE D IVINE L IGHT AND REGAIN OUR S PIRITUAL L IFE IN C HRIST. T HE P RODIGAL S ON ACKNOWLEDGED HIS HOPELESS CONDITION – S PIRITUAL D EATH AND ALIENATION FROM G OD AND ALL H IS B LESSINGS – AND IMMEDIATELY PREPARED H IS C ONFESSION AN D R EPENTANCE. T HE “B READ” to which the Prodigal Son refers SYMBOLISES OUR L ORD J ESUS C HRIST Who is known to us throughout Holy Scripture and especially in the Holy Eucharist – the Divine Liturgy. “... HIS F ATHER SAW HIM AND ... RAN...” - although it was considered undignified and unfitting behaviour for a mature man or elderly person to run, THE F ATHER EXPRESSED H IS LOVE AN D EAGERNESS TO WELCOME THE R ETURN OF H IS L OST C HILD BY RUNNING TO HIM AND EMBRACING HIM WARMLY. T HIS S ELF-HUMILIATION FOR THE SAKE OF H IS LOST S ON INDICATES THE MANNER WHEREBY OUR H EAVENLY F ATHER, THROUGH H IS S ON AND OUR L ORD J ESUS C HRIST’ S S ACRIFICE, ACTIVELY AND PATIENTLY AWAITS AND JOYOUSLY WELCOMES ALL THOSE WHO RETURN SAFELY TO H IS L OVING EMBRACE. T HE R OBE SIGNIFIES R IGHTEOUSNESS GRANTED TO US BY OUR H OLY B APTISM .  I s a i a h 6 1 : 1 0 “... they shall have exceeding Gladness in the Lord. Let my soul rejoice exceedingly in the Lord, for He clothed me with the Garment of Salvation and the Tunic of Gladness. He put a Mitre around me like a Bridegroom and adorned me with ornaments like a Bride. As the earth causes its flower to grow, and as a garden its seeds, so shall the Lord cause Righteousness to rise up, and exceeding Joy before all the Gentiles.” St John Chrysostom and all our Holy Church Fathers have taught us that “ THE G ARMENT OF S ALVATION” IS C HRIST H IMSELF . This explains why St Paul taught us that IN H OLY B APTISM WE “ PUT ON C HRIST.”  G a l a t i a n s 3 : 2 7 “For as many of you as were Baptised into Christ have put on Christ.” St Paul directly relates our S AVING F AITH AND BEING B APTISED by connecting them as OUR MOST PRECIOUS AND INTIMATE B LESSINGS FROM G OD. This particular verse is the ancient Hymn CHANTED AT ALL C HRISTIAN B APTISMS DURING THE P ROCESSION OF THE NEWLY R EGENERATED INTO THE A SSEMBLY. ] T HE S IGNET R ING signifies FAMILY IDENTITY – OUR A DOPTION AT H OLY B APTISM AS A C HILD OF G OD AND C O -HEIR WITH C HRIST TO OUR H EAVENLY F ATHER ’ S KINGDOM . H a g g a i 2 : 2 3 “... ‘In that Day,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘I shall take you, Zerubbabel, my servant, son of Shealtiel... and shall make you like a Signet Ring; for I have Chosen you.’” O FFICIAL R OYAL A CTS IN THE ANCIENT WORLD WERE AUTHENTICATED BY THE USE OF A M ONARCH ’ S S IGNET R ING so by designating Zerubbabel as His Signet, the Lord was, in effect, stating that HE WOULD BE ACTING AS G OD’ S V ICE -R EGENT, CHARGED WITH CARRYING OUT H IS S UPREM E R ULE AND D IVINE W ILL .

On a deeper level: this is a strong Messianic Prophecy. “When our soul becomes Peaceful... then She (our soul) will receive Christ like a Signet Ring upon Her, for She is the Image of God. Then She will be according to that Image, because Heavenly is the Heavenly Man. And we need to bear the Image of the Heavenly One, that is, Peace ... I wish the Lord Jesus may say to you: ‘Put Me as a Seal upon your arm.’ May Peace glow in your heart, Christ in your Works, and may there be formed in you Wisdom and Justice and Redemption.” (St Ambrose Of Milan) T HE S ANDALS signify how WE ARE EQUIPPED TO WALK THE P ATH OF R IGHTEOUS. W E ARE ABLE to follow in the Footsteps of our Saviour, according to His Holy Gospel – BY TH E W ILL OF G OD THE F ATHER, THROUGH THE T EACHINGS OF G OD THE S ON, AND A CTIVATED, I NSPIRED AND ENABLED BY G OD THE H OLY S PIRIT .  E p h e s i a n s 6 : 1 4 - 1 5 “... Stand therefore, having girded yourself with Truth, having put on the Breastplate of Righteousness, and having shod your feet with the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace...” C HRISTIANS FIGHT AGAINST ALL EVIL ARMED WITH D IVINE A RMOUR, WHICH IS G OD’ S U NCREATED D IVINE ENERGY, GIVEN TO US AT H OLY B APTISM AND USED BY US THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES AS WE BATTLE I N S PIRITUAL W ARFARE EVERY MOMENT OF THE DAY. A S F AITHFUL D ISCIPLES OF C HRIST WE HAVE PUT ON all the qualities bestowed upon us AS S PIRITUAL A RMOUR: T RUTH , R IGHTEOUSNESS , P EACE AND F AITH , which are constantly to be used in the conflict we face as we proceed ever closer to God and His Heavenly Kingdom. W ITHOUT S TRUGGLE THERE CAN BE NO D EIFICATION – T HEOSIS OR S PIRITUAL P ERFECTION. T HE F ATTED C ALF is more closely translated as the “wheat-fed bull-calf” or “bull-calf formed from wheat,” which is a male calf that has been raised on wheat in preparation FOR USE AS A S ACRIFICIAL O FFERING. As the Reconciliation of the Prodigal Son was not complete without the Sacrifice of the calf, so too OUR R ECONCILIATION WITH G OD IS ACCOMPLISHED AND PERFECTED - NOT BY OUR R EPENTANCE ALONE BUT BY C HRIST HAVING OFFERED H IMSELF AS THE U LTIMATE, F INAL AND M OS T P UREST O FFERING OF ALL . The Festive Dining on an animal offering “formed from wheat” is a clear reference to our partaking of the Holy Eucharist – THUS OUR R ECONCILIATION WITH G OD IS THROUGH R EPENTANCE -C ONFESSION AND H OLY EUCHARIST – FOR THE F ORGIVENESS OF SINS AND E TERNAL LIFE. Consequently, BOTH THE O LD AND THE N EW C OVENANTS ARE FULFILLED AT THE M ARRIAGE OF C HRIS T THE H EAVENLY B RIDEGROOM AND H IS B RIDE, THE H OLY C HURCH . T HE RESENTFUL O LDER B ROTHER SIGNIFIES THE HARDHEARTEDNESS OF THE P HARISEES AND ALL S ELF R IGHTEOUS , STUBBORN AND UNREPENTANT SINNERS to whom Christ related this Parable. G OD REQUIRES H IS F AITHFUL P EOPLE TO REJOICE WHENEVER EVEN THE MOST GUILTY PERSON RETURNS TO G OD THROUGH SINCERE R EPENTANCE -C ONFESSION. (St Cyril Of Alexandria) The Eldest Son’s FAILURE TO RECOGNISE HIS OWN SINS LEADS TO HIS SELF -RIGHTEOUS AND MERCILESS ATTITUDE. Contrast this with the Contrition of the Prodigal Son: “The one who seems to himself to be Righteous, who does not see the beam in his own eye, becomes angry when forgiveness is granted to one who confesses his sins and begs for mercy.” (St Ambrose Of Milan) The Older Son’s INGRATITUDE IS ALSO APPARENT IN HIS ACCUSATION : “... T HOU NEVER GAVE ME A YOUNG GOAT ...” meanwhile HIS L OVING F ATHER HAS GRANTED HIM EVERYTHING HE HAS ! W E ALWAYS COMPLAIN about and desire what we think we are lacking in material possessions and wealth WHEN WE SHOULD BE CONSTANTLY EXPRESSING OUR DEEPEST GRATITUDE TO G OD FO R ALL H IS A BUNDANT B LESSINGS . W HEN WE LEARN TO ACKNOWLEDGE OUR BOUNDLESS BLESSINGS AND EXPRESS THANKSGIVING TO GO D FOR HIS GREAT MERCY IN ALL THINGS , WE WILL NEVER BE DISSATISFIED WITH ANYTHING IN THIS LIFE. Instead WE WILL BE OVERJOYED BY HOW MUCH G OD HAS GRANTED US EACH AND EVERY MOMENT OF THE DAY – no matter how others may try to tempt us into a state of discontentment and ingratitude! C OUNT YOUR B LESSINGS AND T HANK G OD CONSTANTLY!
