- The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost - July 14, 2019 (Year C)

Cry out to God to rescue the weak and deliver justice on behalf of the needy (Amos 7:7-17 and Psalm 82). God's word is near to all who will recognize and follow his ways (Deuteronomy 30:9-14). He brings forgiveness and life to the humble who trust him and learn his ways (Psalm 25:1-9). We should strive to lead a life worthy of the Lord, bearing fruit in good works, and increasing in the knowledge of God (Colossians 1:1-14). Those who are walking in the path of life will show mercy to strangers and sacrifice comfort for those who are in need (Luke 10:25-37).

Bible in a Year
"Some think that their neighbor is their brother, family, relative or their kinsman. Our Lord teaches who our neighbor is in the Gospel parable of a certain man going down from Jerusalem to Jericho.… Everyone is our neighbor, and we should not harm anyone. If, on the contrary, we understand our fellow human beings to be only our brother and relatives, is it then permissible to do evil to strangers? God forbid such a belief! We are neighbors, all people to all people, for we have one Father." -Jerome on Luke 10:25-37
Collect for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost
O Lord, mercifully receive the prayers of your people who call upon you, and grant that they may know and understand what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to accomplish them; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. -The Book of Common Prayer
