The Good Samaritan

Readings for Monday of the Twenty-seventh week of Ordinary Time

Saint Bruno, priest and Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher, virgin



Eden, the original Jerusalem
Adam, protect and tend
Satan, beating man with sin
Fallen all who come after him

Levite, passes on the other side
priest, touched with foolish pride
Man, left along the side to die
From humanity a collective cry

Jesus, the Samaritan
Jesus, healing wounds of sin
Jesus, Adam begins again
Upon Himself to the inn.

Church, the inn to stay
Pope, innkeeper of our day
You, works to repay
"when I come back"on that final day
