Reflection For The Week

Often we never know exactly who it is we are meeting in the person of our neighbour. In the year 1880 in Paris a rather poorly dressed priest showed up at a presbytery, looking for a night’s lodgings. He had come from Turin, and was trying to raise funds to build a church. The visitor’s name was John Bosco. The resident priest put him in the attic. Many years later when John Bosco was canonised the priest said: ‘Had I know who it was; I would not have put him in the attic. I would have given him the best room in the house’.

Often we know even less of the true identity of those we come across who are in need of help. But it shouldn’t matter. All that is, is that we see in each of them a wounded being, and that we do our best to bind up their wounds. Let us stop for a moment and call to mind the number of times we have passed by someone who needed help.
