Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin July 14, 2019

"Jesus said to him, 'Go and do likewise.'" (Luke 10:37)  This was Jesus' command at the end of the Good Samaritan story. Did you know that the Samaritans and Jews despised each other. The moral of the story is to love our neighbor. That means loving someone you may not know or someone that looks different than you or someone that you don't like. All without expecting anything in return.
