On Being Neighborly

“If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.” James 2:8-9

Don’t just love those in your neighborhood, but your neighbors in every neighborhood, because your neighbors are scattered all over the planet. This isn’t about the proximity of certain people, but the dignity of all people.

From a Franciscan Benediction:

“May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships so that you may live deep within your heart.”
