In this Sunday’s Gospel we hear the familiar story of the Good Samaritan – Today who are the Good Samaritans in our world – the people who inspire us to live our faith and to be better people – Can we be one??
If one of us were to pose Jesus the question “Who is my neighbour?” what would he answer? He would certainly remind us that our neighbour is not only our fellow countrymen but also those outside our community, even those who our community shuns or excludes! Not only Christians but Muslims also, not only Catholics but Protestants also, not only those with faith, but those with none also. But he would immediately add that this is not the most important thing. The most important thing is not to know who my neighbour is but to see whose neighbour I can be here and now, for whom I can be the Good Samaritan.
