My Reflection for Monday October 7, Our Lady of the Rosary; Luke 10:25-37

Gospel: Luke 10:25-37
There was a scholar of the law who stood up to test Jesus and said, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read it? He said in reply, “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself. He replied to him, “You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.”

But because he wished to justify himself, he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor? Jesus replied, A man fell victim to robbers as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead. A priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. Likewise a Levite came to the place, and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight.

He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn, and cared for him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction, take care of him.

If you spend more than what I have given you, I shall repay you on my way back. Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers’ victim? He answered, “The one who treated him with mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.

My Reflection:
We all desire eternal life with Jesus and we are given by Him the keys toward it. The first key is to love Him and the second one is to love our fellowmen as how we love ourselves. But how could we manifest our love for God if we hardly have time for Him? When we give so much time for our earthly undertaking thus we forget God.
  
To love Jesus is to give our time to Him. He doesn’t ask us all of our time He only ask us a little of our time. For example, how many hours do we have for the entire week? Jesus only ask us to give Him one hour of those many hours a week though our presence in the Holy Mass. Many of us are not able to fulfill this one hour meeting with Jesus for the reason that we are very busy.

To Love Jesus is to share Him with our fellowmen. How many of us are able to share Jesus through our words and actions. To love Jesus is to read the bible even for only two minutes a day. How many of us are able to read the bible daily even for two minutes a day?

And finally to love our fellowmen is to love them without preconditions, to love them by not imposing our will on them. And to love them no matter whom they are and no matter how sinful they may seem for we are all sinful children of God. …
