Pull him out immediately 

October 30, 2020 3:00 am

“Jesus spoke to the scholars of the law and Pharisees in reply, asking, ‘Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath or not?’ But they kept silent; so he took the man and, after he had healed him, dismissed him. Then he said to them ‘Who among you, if your son or ox falls into a cistern, would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?’” (LK 14: 3-5)

Love is always a concern for the other person, comforting or supporting him/her, pulling him/her out, bringing him/her joy and hope, creating an amazing atmosphere and place for growth. Love is in giving, sharing, admiring, and respecting our brothers and sisters. Love reacts immediately, it doesn’t wait for the next occasion or better option; love reacts because the action is needed. Love comes from our hearts and is provoked by our hearts—the best place to hear Our Lord’s voice and to follow Him. 

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
