Gospel Of Consolation

12th Sunday after Pentecost 2017

The parable of the Good Samaritan revolutionized the ancient world’s outlook on how to treat the less fortunate.  Its impact is still felt today because even our secular society has “Samaritan” laws and institutions recalling this lesson from Our Lord.  There is a deeper meaning to this story which explains how Christ is the Good Samaritan toward each of us who have fallen because of our sins.  A yet more elevated understanding of this truth creates the desire in a Christian to face the evils in this world and transform them into good.  The practice of a deep interior life is necessary to accomplish this sanctification of self and of the world around us.
