Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time- July 10, 2016

Happy Sunday!

The Good Samaritan is each one of us. As he stopped to help he was free from a public version or award sought for doing good.  The inherant beauty of the person who had been robbed was enough for the chivalry of the nameless Samaritan.  On Sunday we encounter the living God in the Mass.  We ourselves are carried by Christ until we are restored and then able to extend the kindness to others.  Stop and look at God's saving grace in your life.  Can we imagine how it is for souls wandering apart from the truth?  The Samaritan even offered to continued care ( two coins) on the return trip, if needed.  The Gospel is a story of: MORE!  More love, more forgiveness, more compassion and more of a unity with all of humanity is always before us.  Not a ' one then done' frame, this view is bigger, wider and deeper than anything faced before or ever will.  To visitors passing through who ponder whether the Gospel is, really true??? You may ask, " Can it be that strangers care for those half dead?'  Yes , yes, yes!  A person in need draws us out from a world numbed from excesses.  Having been loved first by Christ, we rise to seek the lost as lived by our savior, Jesus Christ!! This Sunday the Samaritan passes before us to prompt us to reach out in care to every person created in the image of God!


St. Therese did the same in a series of letters to a seminarian requesting prayerful aide and friendship.  " Maurice & Therese- The Love Story of a Love" by Patrick Ahern opens the writings between two who may otherwise been limited in love.  We grow in love when be holding the other!

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.

Sunday is the day of the Lord. Let us come to Him as a family specially on this day to celebrate him and share the joy with others present in the church

Sunday is the most precious day of the week, time for reflection, Mass, family, and often religious studies, reflection, writing and ministry.
