The Good Samaritan

During Lent, we are called to inflame charity in our hearts, that we may love our neighbour as ourselves.


The parable of the Good Samaritan, depicted here in Melton Mowbray's parish church, tells us that our neighbour is everyone we meet, even our 'enemy'.


As such, we are reminded in Lent of the need to perform those acts of mercy and charity which will train us to love more like Christ, who is our Good Samaritan.
