Who is This?

Â Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. â€œTeacher,â€ he said, â€œwhat must I do to inherit eternal life?â€ He said to him, â€œWhat is written in the law? What do you read there?â€ He answered, â€œYou shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.â€ And he said to him, â€œYou have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.â€
Â But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, â€œAnd who is my neighbor?â€ Jesus replied, â€œA man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, â€˜Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.â€™ Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?â€ He said, â€œThe one who showed him mercy.â€ Jesus said to him, â€œGo and do likewise.â€

good evening madam,
I am your on line student-Jane Frances. This is providential, I missed the Eucharistic celebration this morning because I was traveling from Tanzania-from visiting our sisters. Thank you for the homily. Very precise. Madam you have a much younger voice, I thought I was listening to a 16 year old girl reading but the quality of the homily and your super
articulation of English brought in the professional touch that you have a gift for. If I wanted to be listening to you more often, where do I log in? Now I will be able to tell your voice when I listen to the course videos.
Ones again, I have enjoyed your homily madam, thank you for sharing,

Hello, Sr. Jane, and many thanks for your kind words. You can listen to preaching from a variety of different preachers every day at this site, http://www.word.op.org, and I would love it if your sisters in East Africa were able to listen regularly when they do not otherwise have access to preaching on the readings of the day. Whenever you visit, you will automatically be taken to the proper day, and if you are looking for a reflection on a particular day, you can simply click on the calendar for that date. Have a good break from studies this week!
