Prodigal’s Mother

Let’s get back to the Prodigal’s mother. I can’t stop wondering about her and why she’s missing from this parable. Is it because the story is symbolic of our Heavenly Father’s acceptance and forgiveness of us and our wasteful, prodigal wanderings and not of a female creator and forgiver? Is it because women stayed behind the scenes in that day and time? As a mother in 2007, when any of my children arrive, I do everything possible to make them feel welcome, and as time allows, I really make  a big production out of it.

If anyone knows where this mother was or why she’s missing from the story in Luke, please enlighten me.
