The Good Samaritan

It is customary to see the parable of the Good Samaritan as a tale about how we should love our neighbour, but the Fathers of the Church also read it allegorically: God is the Good Samaritan who sends his Son to bandage our wounds, heal our sins and take us to the inn of heaven.

 

This fine Victorian window is in Pusey church.
