Bishop Ambo David


For the Original Inspiration of the Portrayal of Christ as the Good Samaritan and Humankind as the Victim on the Roadside, see
today's (May 26) Office of the Readings on the Feast of St Philip Neri by St Augustine (354-430AD):

"Who is this stranger and neighbor if not the one who became our neighbor out of compassion?"

"The man lying on the road, left half-dead by robbers, the man treated with contempt by the priest and the levite who passed by, the man approached by the passing Samaritan to take care of him and help him, that man is the whole human race. When the immortal one, the holy one, was far removed from us because we were mortal and sinners, he came down to us, so that he, the stranger, might become our neighbor."


Note the shared middle eye made possible by Divine Mercy: God seeing as Humankind sees, and Humankind seeing as God sees.
