God's mercy is for all people. God's love for His people in
Christ is deep and broad and high indeed! From Isaiah we hear that
"the Lord God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, declares, 'I
will gather yet others to Him besides those already gathered'"
(Isaiah 56:8). Paul boldly declares that "God has not rejected His
people whom He foreknew," but desires that they receive mercy
through the Church (Romans 11:2). Jesus, who makes clear that His
mission was first to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, marvels
at the faith of one who was doubly an outsider-a Samaritan and a
woman! Today's readings challenge our habit of treating strangers
and outsiders with suspicion, and invite us to find ways to show
the mercy and welcome of God to everyone-even to those we might
think are the least likely people in our community to be welcomed
