Most of us at one time or another have experienced the fret and fuss of a Martha and Mary clash of temperament in the home.  And in the end, we are left wondering just how does the Martha-Mary story fit into our lives and what exactly the Lord is saying to us through it.  The […]

The parable of the Good Samaritan is one of our Lord’s best known short stories.  In this parable when questioned by the lawyer, Jesus directs his attention to what being a good neighbour entails.  Of course, the unlikely hero of the story Jesus uses as an example, turns out to be a Samaritan who acting […]
