Serving the Word: Lk 10: 25-37

Luke 10, 25-37:
“And who is my neighbour?”.

Your neighbour is a person you take to your heart.
I’m sure that throughout your life you have heard, read, meditated and prayed the gospel of today more than once.
I would like to invite youagain during today to conjugate the verb “to be a neighbour” realizing in your life the seven actions made by the Samaritan who “became a neighbour” to the wounded man on the road:
1: Approach people by trying to understand and to appreciate the feelings of each one.
2: To each person you meet on the road approach them without fear or anxiety.
3: Seeks to “bind up their wounds” and never try to make them worse.
4: Give them your support and your understanding.
5: Provide what is in your power so that their “wounds” heal and they recover.
6: Pour into those wounds “oil and wine”. That is to say: love, gentleness, tenderness, mercy…
7: Care for each person and, in particular, for those who are close to you.
Thus you will be a neighbour of all and you will live mercy.
This same thing God does continuously with you and with all of us.
Good day.
