Seeing your life through the lens of the gospel

 

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - 14 July 2019

 

Luke 10:25-37

1. Today’s gospel brings us right to the heart of what a Christian life involves: love of God and love of neighbour. Jesus tells us that having life both now and in the future is the fruit of living in a spirit of love. How have you experienced love given and received as a source of life and vitality?

2. With media today we are brought face to face with suffering, poverty and hunger so vast that it can engender a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. The parable challenges us about how we react when we come face to face with a person in need. We may sometimes try to avoid getting involved. Recall when you overcame this reaction and reached out to help. What did that do for you, and for the other person?

3. Bring to mind the people who have been an inspiration to you by the care and attention they have given to others.
