- Message for World Mission Sunday, June 8, 2014 - Pope Francis
The identity of the Good Samaritan is unknown. He was someone passing by and saw someone in need. He was moved with compassion. He responded, using the resources and abilities that God has given. Following his example, we are called to respond with compassion. We cannot remain indifferent to the needs of those around us. Our response may be simple, but if it is an expression of compassion, it has the capacity to heal.
