NOV 9 & 10: 22ND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

NOV 9: CONFESSION – 3;00 PM, VESPERAL DIVINE LITURGY – 4:00 PM; NOV 10: 3RD HOUR – 09:40 AM, DIVINE LITURGY – 10:00 AM.

The Gospel Reading this Sunday is Luke 10:25-37. Luke 10:25-37, is The Parable of the Good Samaritan. “The Samaritan is the one who recognizes that when it comes to the question of who is our neighbor, there are no rules. Our neighbor is anyone in need. This parable teaches the impossibility of earning one’s salvation. The standard, which is perfect love, holds up a moral level for which to strive and it attacks racial prejudices.
