Deuteronomy 3o:ro-r( i Colossians L:15-2o / Luke r.o:25-37

"Who is my neighbor?" the scholar asked Jesus. lf he'd asked me, l'd have answered, "A neighbor watches your house while you're tending to a loved one in the hospital. A neighbor cares for your baby while you get emergency medicine. A neighbor comes over at 10 PM to investigate why your water is off." That fits with Jesus' answer: "The one who treated [the injured man] with mercy." When we're on mercy's receiving end, the provider doesn't much matterwe're just glad to receive it. The bogeyman could have come over to fix my water at:.o PM, and l'd have been grateful. Then why are we sometimes stingy, judgmental, or discriminating against those in need of mercy? We'd like to think we're the Good Samaritan, merciful even to someone we dislike. But if we're honest, we'd admit we're often the priest or the Levite, not just passing by someone in need, but going out of our way to "pass on the opposite side." We forget how strongly Jews and Samaritans hated each other-and that we too are capable of such distaste and disregard. When we're in need of mercy, we accept it without complaint no matter who it comes from. May we be generous with our mercy without determining whether someone is worthy of it. For God has showered mercy on us and we, as sinners, are undeserving of such grace. lf God is so generous to us, who are we to withhold mercy from others? Janel Esker

Where and why did the practice of sacrficing animals, children, and other liuing beings start? It seems to me th.at sacrNrt.cing an animal or anothlr human being is selfish. Wl'ty didn't tLrcy sacrffice themselues instead? 5t, Bonaventure
