This is a small selection of free-use illustrations, photographs or images based on the readings and prayers/propers in the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C. It is part of the Lectionary Art Series.
Note: the long form of today's Gospel tells the story of the Prodigal Son - see pictures for the 4th Sunday of Lent, Year C for image suggestions based on that story.
