10-03-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 3, 2016
Jesus tells a parable about a compassionate foreigner.
After none of the locals would help their mugged compatriot, it took a foreigner to stop and assist the half-murdered man.  Jesus tells us that he was moved with compassion at the sight.  He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them.  Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn, and cared for him.   Lk_10:25-37

Yeah, but I was late for a meeting.  Yeah, but I couldn’t get my hands dirtied.  Yeah, but maybe they’ll mug me next.  We have so many excuses not to bend down to pick up that piece of trash, not to give that beggar a quarter, not to stop and smile or say hi to someone in the dumps.  It really doesn’t take that much.  And they’re ALL our neighbors.  Who knows, just maybe next time around, it may be me on the side of that road!!!
