What it means to show inclusivity for all

Wednesday of the 32nd Week in Ordinary Time

Today’s gospel tells Luke’s account of Jesus healing the ten people with leprosy where the samaritan comes back to thanks Jesus. Fr. Ron reflects on how this shows the inclusivity of Luke’s gospel. The Samaritan is surprised that Jesus cares for him and Jesus is surprised that the Samaritan comes back to thank him.
Fr. Ron challenges us to be inclusive in our relationships to welcome even those who are viewed negativity.
There is no room for ethnic animosity the Church or God’s Kingdom.
