"He said again, A man had two sons. The youngest says to his father: Father, give me the part of good that must come back to me. And the father shared their good with them. A few days after, the youngest son, having collected everything, went to a distant country, where he dissipated his property by living in debauchery. When he had spent all, there was a great famine in this country, and he began to find himself in need. He went to serve one of the inhabitants of the country, who sent him to his fields to keep the pigs. He would have liked to be satisfied with the carouges that the pigs ate, but nobody gave him any. Having returned to himself, he said to himself: How many mercenaries my father has bread in abundance, and here I am starving! I will rise, I will go to my father, and I will say to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me as one of your mercenaries. And he arose, and went to his father. As he was still far away, his father saw him and was moved with compassion, he ran to throw himself on his neck and kissed him. The son said to him, "My father, I have sinned against heaven and against you, I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But the father said to his servants, Bring quickly the most beautiful robe, and put on it; put a ring on his finger, and shoes on his feet. Bring the fat calf, and kill it. Let us eat and rejoice; for my son here was dead, and he returned to life; he was lost, and he is found. And they began to rejoice"
