A man lying unconscious by the side of the road. Three travelers passing by—only one of whom stops to give aid. And a teacher’s pointed lesson that challenged one man’s way of life—and should cause us to re-examine our own. That’s the parable of the Good Samaritan: one of Jesus Christ’s greatest teachings. Fr. Tateos Abdalian explores its meaning for us in the latest episode of “Choices,” part of the Eastern Diocese’s online video series, Bread & Salt. It’s a lesson in recognizing who our neighbors are, and showing them the mercy they deserve.
