Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read it?”
– Luke 10:25-37

Our love for God, since He is invisible, is hard to see and to measure apart from how we love others. As St. John says, “How can we say we love God who is not seen when we do not love our brothers whom we do see?” We must extend the hand of love and friendship to all we meet who may be, in any way, in need of our love and not judge them for their condition.
Lord, You have pricked my conscience. Too often do I pretend to have valid excuses for not helping. I am wrong. You, my “Good Samaritan,” help me to be one to anybody in need.
