The gospel today says that Samaritans would not welcome Jesus and his disciples into their homeland. What might have happened if they had put aside their prejudices and welcomed them? Many wonderful things could have happened! Likewise, it is important for us to undo all our prejudices and let God put certain people into our lives to help us grow. Based on the readings of 1 Kings 19: 16-21; Galatians 5: 1-18; Luke 9:51-62.
Fr. MD takes the opportunity to discuss what it means to deny oneself and take up his cross daily to follow Jesus.
