One of my very first blog posts was about today’s gospel, the Parable of the Good Samaritan


https://rootofjesse2.wordpress.com/2009/02/04/homework-assignment-the-parable-of-the-good-samaritan/

The homilist on EWTN said today that the man beset by thieves represents us, the men who passed him by represents many people, primarily those who follow their religion pharisaic-ally, and that the Samaritan represents, of course Christ, and His mercy.

I find it telling that, when Jesus asked the man he was talking to “Which of these acted as a good neighbor?” the man couldn’t even call him a Pharisee.
