Reflection: So, who is my neighbour today? My neighbour is far more than the person who lives near or next to me. My neighbour is anyone who is in need. It’s that simple and that challenging! Every day in so many ways, we meet people who desperately need our help. How we respond is our choice. We can be like the priest and Levite; we can cross to the other side and ignore them. We can close our eyes and hearts to them. Or, like the Samaritan, we can go out of our way to help them in whatever way we can.

My neighbour is anyone who is need. St. James reminds us; ‘If we see one of our brothers or sisters who is in need of clothes or food and do not have enough to live on, and we say, I wish you well…without giving them the necessities to live, what good is that? It is the same with faith, if good deeds do not go with it, it is quite dead.

Lord, When I see someone who needs (my) help, may I be moved with compassion. May I reach to help them; may I do what I can to care for them in whatever way I can, no matter how small I think it is. (Br Michael Moore OMI)

Reflection: At the time of Jesus those who were sick in any way were ignored, despised and kept away from the temple and the synagogue. They were seen, treated and condemned as sinners and therefore so far out of God’s reach. Jesus came to put the record straight, and to challenge the assumptions of the self-righteous religious leaders who thought they knew better and were better than others.

Jesus came with the radical message that God loved those everyone else looked down because they were poor and marginalised. Even when he walked the roads of Jerusalem, Jesus knew he could not carry out his mission on his own. He called others to be his companions on the journey as he preached to people and healed them. He was preparing his followers so that they could carry on his work when he was gone.

In the gospel today, Jesus appointed seventy-two others and sent then out ahead of him in pairs to all the towns and places he himself was to visit. These were his co-workers; these he called by name so that they could share in and be part of his ministry and mission.

Jesus is very direct when he sends them out in his name. He gives them very clear and direct instructions of what to carry, what to do, what to say and how to treat those they meet. As he came to share and proclaim the good news to the poor, now Jesus is sending his closest friends out to do the same. He called them by name, trained them and is now sending them out as his missionary disciples.

It would be a great mistake to think that this gospel is just history and that is has nothing to say to us or nothing to do with us today; nothing could be further from the truth. Today, we are the very ones who are called by name by the same Jesus.

You and I are now sent out in his name to live and share the good news of the gospel with those meet each and every day. We are called to share the good news of the gospel with our family, our friends and neighbours and those who meet in our parish community.
