"And the son said to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
I am not now worthy to be called thy son. And the father said to his servants: Bring forth quickly the first robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it, and let us eat and make merry: Because this my son was dead, and is come to life again: was lost, and is found."--Luke 15: 21 - 25

The Prodigal Son, the Sinners Return to God
by Fr. Michael Muller, 1875

"All persons like to read the lives of great men. But they probably like still better to read their own lives. The well-known story of the Prodigal Son is more or less the life of all of us. That story is illustrated in this volume, and as its illustrations are but chapters in our own lives, it is hoped that their perusal will prove as pleasant as it may be profitable to those prodigal children most deeply concerned in the narrative, who have abandoned their Father's household, taken up their abode in a strange and far-off land, squandered their heavenly inheritance, and instead of the Bread of Life find their only sustenance in the husks of swine."--Page 18-19
