REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS - “Teacher, What Must I Do to Inherit Eternal Life?” – (Luke 10:25-37) The path to inherit eternal life is not so far from us as to need someone to bring it near. It is visible in Jesus and expressed in His teaching: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ This path to eternal life calls us to stretch beyond our comfort zone to the very unfamiliar and the strange. It is a human inclination in us to love our own and despise what we consider as the other. Your neighbour is that person with whom you may not necessarily share the same faith. He is that person with whom you may not necessarily share the same race, ideology or opinions. In a world that is becoming more exclusive and boundary-bound, true worshipers of God are invited to break those boundaries and reach out to the other.
