First Reading:   Isaiah 1:12-17

Isaiah decries the empty religious rituals of his people and calls them to act justly, especially on behalf of those most vulnerable.

Second Reading   Acts 2:43-47; 4:32-35

The early church realized that God had abundantly blessed them, so they abundantly gave that all would have what was needed for life.

Gospel:   Luke 10:25-37

The story of the Good Samaritan is told by our Lord. The parable shows us that our neighbor is the one we least expect to be a neighbor. The neighbor is the “other,” the one most despised or feared or not like us.
