Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.
 
 
Generous and Loving Creator, you have called us to Malama i ka Makana (Cherish the Gift).  As disciples of your Son, we ask that your Spirit open our minds and hearts to more deeply appreciate your countless blessings.  Increase your transforming spirit within us, so as to nurture our call to stewardship as a way of life marked always by faith-filled prayer, service to others and generous giving.  With the kokua of St. Marianne and St. Damien, teach us to be good stewards so we may return a hundred-fold the makana entrusted to us.  We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

“GO AND DO LIKEWISE”
In the Parable of the Good Samaritan, the priest and the levite avoided the poor man on the road who was beaten up severely by thieves.  They did not want to be rendered defiled by touching the body.  They were in a hurry because of the imminent danger in the area.  They did not want to get into any trouble or to disrupt their busy schedule.  Their priority was not the welfare of the other person but their own safety, their job and their comfort.
On the other hand, the Good Samaritan did not care about his own safety and welfare.  He approached the wounded man and brought him to a travelers’ inn for medical treatment.  He went out of his own way to help the man.  He did not mind that his journey was delayed or that he incurred unexpected expenses for somebody he did not even know.  For him, the other person was as important as himself.
The first question which the priest and the levite asked was:” If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?”  But the Good Samaritan reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?  The Good Samaritan did not give the excuse “God is with you.”  He focused his responsibility to help which reflected Godliness.
Pope Francis said that :“The Good Samaritan is not just a parable but also a way of life.”  The Good Samaritan indicates an attitude or lifestyle that attends to people who need help even if they are strangers.  It reaches out to others, getting out of the comfort zones and ever ready to be disturbed by the needs of others.  We are therefore challenged to incarnate the Parable of the Good Samaritan.  Let us strive to be good Samaritans by keeping wide our eyes, our hands and hearts open to all our suffering brethren.  The Lord needs our eyes to see their needs.  The Lord needs our hands to carry their burdens.  The Lord needs above all our hearts to manifest His mercy and love to them.
The Lord constantly bends down and helps us whenever we are in need.  As His disciples called to be good Samaritans, we should not hesitate to touch the wounds of those who suffer and provide healing with our concrete acts of mercy.  St. Augustine said that: “ We are the Church … the Travelers’ Inn, where the wounded are healed.”
Our society is severely afflicted with selfishness.  This makes people indifferent and insensitive to the sorry plights of their neighbors.  A closed hand is the symbol of selfishness.  It cannot and does not want to give.  It cannot also receive.  It wants everything for itself.  In a society of closed hands, life is meaningless.  Everything comes to a standstill.  Nothing comes and nothing goes.  This is what makes life miserable.
Let us overcome selfishness in the world by being good Samaritans to our neighbors.  We take to heart what the Lord reminds us today through the Parable of the Good Samaritan: to abolish all boundaries, end all divisions and transcend all prejudices by recognizing our common humanity.  We are all neighbors in the Kingdom of God…called to be good Samaritans to one another!
Being a Good Samaritan does not depend on your social status, religion, race, color or culture.  It depends on how compassionate your heart is and how you treat others. “Go and do likewise…”
