|Chapter 242||The Great Gospel of John, Book 6|
(Lk. 15:10) Thus, I say unto you, there is joy before the angels of God for one repenting sinner.
4. And I say to you: There also will be a great joy in heaven among the angels of God about one sinner who was lost, but could be found again by a true and serious penance!'
(Lk. 15:11) And he said, A certain man had two sons;
(Lk. 15:12) and the younger of them said to his father, Father, give to me the share of the property that falls [to me]. And he divided to them what he was possessed of.
5. And listen further to a still very meaningful parable! There was a very respectable and very, very rich person who had two sons. And the youngest son went to the father and said to him: 'Give me the share or the value of my goods which is my inheritance; because I want to move away and make my fortune in the world!' And the father divided the goods of the sons and gave to the younger his share.
