CMMB: Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer 7/14/2013

Weekly prayer reflection for Summer
“A Samaritan traveler was moved with compassion at the sight. He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn and cared for him.”
Luke 10:33-34

15th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear Friends,
Our neighbors are people in need. The Good Samaritan is our model. We should not close our eyes and our hearts. Rather, with compassionate, generous hearts, we do what we can to help the needy, the suffering, the vulnerable. One way to live this gospel is found in the work of Catholic Medical Mission Board. Through volunteers and local health workers, through supplying medicines and prosthetics, aid is coming to thousands around the globe. We may not be the one to personally bind up the wounds or hand out the anti-malaria drug, but we make that possible by our generous support and contributions. Indeed, we reach out to the neighbor who is suffering. We become “Good Samaritans.”
Lord of the universe, look in love upon Your people. Pour the healing oil of Your compassion on a world that is wounded and dying. Send us out in search of the lost, to comfort the afflicted, to bind up the broken, to free those trapped under the rubble of their fallen dreams.
