15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 14, 2019

Reflection

Mass Readings: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/071419.cfm

The readings for this weekend we witness how a lawyer challenges Jesus, while on his journey to Jerusalem. The parable of the good Samaritan is well known to many of us. It is often these stories that we know so well that in our lifetime we struggle to follow the example. How many times have we come across a situation where someone was in need and we chose to turn away? How about the times we have seen homeless reach to us and we avoid their pleas? We are all called to be more like the good Samaritan. How can we better our community by getting out of our comfort zone and help those in need? Is our church in need?

Moses even reminds the people to heed to the laws of the Lord stating that the laws to follow is not something that is so out of reach that it becomes impossible.

No, it is something very near to you, in your mouth and in your heart, to do it.

Deuteronomy 30:14

It can be as simple as saying something nice to someone in need, reminding them that they are not alone and you are there to help. Let us all become ‘better Samaritans’ for our community, family, and strangers.
