More of The Good Samaritan

In light of all that has been happening these past few weeks in Orlando and Dallas and the ensuing protests across the country and the growing political debates, it would seem that the timing of this past Sunday’s Gospel – the story of the Good Samaritan - hit home for many preachers and listeners.  Echoes of various homilies are still being replayed as many look to make sense of the violence and discerning the same question asked by the lawyer in the Gospel: “Who is my neighbor.”

So as you spend time in prayer this week, you may want to hear what others were preaching this past Sunday.  Since homilies are meant to be heard, the following links (just click on the person’s name) will take you to the audio of each message.  None are more than 11 minutes…each person having a different slant on the topic.  Some may be somewhat shocking…but then again, so is the true Gospel.

Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM
(link includes the reading of the Gospel, homily begins at the 3:00 mark)
