Aug 7 His elder son, returning from the field, heard the music and the dancing. He asked a servant what was happening. He said, Your brother returned and your father killed a cow for he is healthy. He got angry and wouldnt go in, so his father came to plead with him. He said to his father. All these years Ive obediently served you. Yet you never gave me a young goat for a party with my friends. But this son who wasted your wealth on harlots returns, and you killed a fat cow for him.

The father replied, Son, you are always with me, and everything mine is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, for your brother was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found.
