He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do
likewise.” Luke 10:37
My dear Children, Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
On one occasion, a religious leader asks Jesus to tell him what it means
to love one’s neighbor. In reply, Jesus tells this famous parable of the Good
Samaritan who helped the man attacked by the robbers, to teach who is our
neighbor and about the true nature of love and mercy.
Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy. Mercy has become living
and visible in Jesus of Nazareth, reaching its culmination in Him. In the
fullness of time, when everything had been arranged according to His plan
of salvation, He sent His only Son into the world, to reveal His love for us
in a definitive way. Jesus of Nazareth, by His words, His actions, and His
entire person reveals the mercy of God.
Mercy is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace. Our salvation depends
on it. It is the word reveals the very mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. The
ultimate and supreme act by which God comes to meet us. Mercy is the
bond that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being
loved forever despite our sinfulness.
The story of the Good Samaritan is about compassion and mercy. As we
travel through life’s journey, we meet all kinds of people, many in need of
our help. Let us ask God to open our hearts to show tender love,
compassion and mercy for the needful even though they are strangers to us.
God’s blessings upon you!

O Holy St Anthony, the gentlest and kindest of Saints, your burning love of God, your e alted virtue, and your great charity towards
your fellow creatures, made you worthy, when on earth to possess miraculous powers such as were given to no other saint.

The an ious prayer of bitter trial was never addressed to you in vain.
To the sick you gave back health you restored what was lost the sorrow stricken were the objects of your tender compassion even the
dead you raised to life when the wounded heart cried out to you from the depths of its bitter anguish.

confidence, we implore you to obtain for us here mention your re uest .
