We sinned each day we passed you by
And did not bind your wound,
To this one's pain and that one's cry
So doing to the very least,
We did, Oh Lord, to you;
For, like the Levite and the priest,
We had so much to do.
We left you lying there for dead,
Abandoned and unhealed;
In your unheeded cry for bread
Is selfishness revealed!
I have a subscription to Magnificat at Therese's suggestion, so that I can easily follow the Office of Readings which is a wealth of scripture for your daily prayer time. I'm very inconsistent with my reading of it. This morning, Magnificat had a very poetic and reflective reference (above) to the parable of the good samaritan (Luke 10:30-37).
