8th Sunday of Luke - The Good Samaritan

Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, and Sisters, Bless!

This Sunday we read the Parable of the Good Samaritan from Luke 10:25-37. The following brief excerpt from St. Nicholai's homily this on (Homilies, Vol. 2, 266) reminds us of the simplicity of our life in Christ.

I hope this propels us into the coming Nativity Fast with zeal and joy in service and self-sacrifice.

In Christ,
+ Fr. Noah

See how, by this parable, the Lord brings both commandments about love together in one, Loving Him as our closest Neighbor, we thus love both God and man, and so fulfill at one stroke both commandments on love.
- St. Nicholai of South Canaan
