Mercy Gospel Reflection: Jul 10


Gospel Reflections for Married Couples

10 July – 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In this week’s Gospel, we hear Jesus’s parable of the Good Samaritan in response to the lawyer’s question, “Who is my neighbour?”

Take sometime today to reflect on these words.

It can be easy to forget that our spouse is also our “neighbour.”

Are there times when your spouse is in need but, like the priest of the Levite, you pass by on the other side of the road?

How could you respond differently?

How might your respond in love?
