Daily homily thoughts, 10/8

The church fathers read the Gospel we have today of the Good Samaritan and interpreted it this way. We are the broken down man stuck in the ditch. Jesus comes to us, throws oil on us, bandages us up, and takes us to the inn (the Church). He is the ultimate Samaritan (foreigner), being that he is not from this world. Let’s let Jsus pick us up and take us to the inn. Unlike us for him, he always has a room for us.
