Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Moved with Compassion- The Heart of Our God
At that same instant, he lifted up my soul from the earth while the sound of His words kept ringing in me. He added, ‘It is only the soul purified of its sins that I raise to Me in this way.’ (Elizabeth) (January 13, 1966)
Today’s Meditation- But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him 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)
Prayer Meditation- Lord we so often see ourselves as the Good Samaritan, and we ought to because we are to love and be charitable to all, even when it is inconvenient or even repugnant. Samaritans and Jews were not on friendly terms. But what we miss is that we are the ones that have needed and even now need You to look on us with compassion and to care for us and lift us from our sins into Your loving care. We need a Savior! The inn is a symbol of the Church whose mission is the salvation of souls. As we look at ourselves, let us ask You where we still need healing and purification, let us come to You for healing and then let is take this healing to all because all are our neighbors!
