ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the infinite love God has for man. He discusses the Gospel of Saint Luke where publicans and sinners have frequent the Lord's company and the Pharisees accuse the Lord for receiving and dining with sinners. The Lord then tells of the story where the shepherd left the 99 sheep that were safe in the sheepfold to look for one that is missing. The author relates this story to the Lord's love as one that seeks those who are lost and cannot turn away even a sinner's soul if it seeks Him.
