Our Prodigal Son Plaque is a touching depiction of the Father embracing his prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) making this an ideal gift for anyone going to Confession (the Sacrament of Reconciliation) for the first time as well as for anyone finally coming back home to their families or returning to the Church, perhaps after a long time away. This solid bronze plaque symbolizes then for us invitation and challenge, consolation and encouragement, unity and peace.
A Solid Bronze Wall Plaque
This solid bronze bronze plaque measures 7.9 inches high and 6.3 inches wide. This plaque will hang with ease on any wall . Conceived and cast in Germany by a world-renowned master bronze-smith, this is a great gift where divisiveness, alienation, enmity, fear and darkness have held sway but now have been been overcome, especially through the sacrament of Reconciliation and the embrace of formerly estranged brothers and sisters.
A Sign of Mercy, Reconciliation and Forgiveness
This plaque is a powerful symbol of the healing and transforming power of forgiveness, mercy, reconciliation and acceptance. Too often we forget that the God of Christianity is most essentially the God of Love – the God of mercy and forgiveness. In one of his Lenten sermons (March 17, 2013) Pope Francis gently chides us: The Lord never tires of forgiving us. Never! We, we are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness! This solid bronze plaque reminds all of us never to tire in asking for forgiveness when we most need it, and never to tire of forgiving others when they most need us to do so.
