Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - Luke 10:25-37

Read 313 Times

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. In The Joy of the Gospel Pope Francis comments that it is a temptation for some religious people to claim they are too busy to get involved with the poor and says ‘none of us can think we are exempt from concern for the poor and for social justice.' Who are the people whose commitment to these causes inspire you.
