*NEW* Stewardship Reflection
15th Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 10, 2016
“Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.’’ Luke 10:37
This was Jesus’ command at the end of the Good Samaritan story. But did you know that the Samaritans and Jews despised each other. The moral of the story is to love our neighbor, who may be someone you don’t know, someone that looks different than you or someone you don’t like, without expecting anything in return.
