Loving Your Neighbor: Who is Your Neighbor?
Eight times in the Bible we are told to love our neighbor -- one of the Bible's most repeated commands. In 2005 in His Encyclical Deus Caritas Est, Pope Benedict XVI reminded us: “Love of neighbor, grounded in the love of God, is first and foremost a responsibility for each individual member of the faithful….. As a community, the Church must practice love. The Church is God’s family in the world. In this family no one ought to go without the necessities of life. We contribute to a better world only by personally doing good now, with full commitment and wherever we have the opportunity.”Only those who are involved with their neighbor and his needs concretely show their love for Jesus. When Jesus was asked by someone who his neighbor was Jesus responded by telling the story of the Good Samaritan, who helped a stranger in need by the roadside (Luke 10:29).
