Which of those three … was a neighbor to the man?  … “The one who showed him mercy.” - Lk 10:36, 37

Reflection.  The parable of the Good Samaritan is a lesson in charity.  The traveler was robbed, beaten, and left for dead.  The Samaritan took him to an inn and paid his bill.  Being a neighbor to a stranger is a way of showing the love of God.

Prayer.  Dear Jesus, help me to be a good Samaritan to those in desperate need.
