God on the side of the poor

The last church I served in was located at St Lukes, on the northside of Cork.

Outsiders thought St Lukes was a well-off area, close to Montenotte and all

that. I noticed great irony at its post office. Over the door was given its location

� �St Luke's Cross� in English, but �Crossaire na mBocht� in Irish (the

crossroads of the poor).

St Luke himself would surely have approved. The writer of the third gospel

always paid great attention in his writings to people on the margins. As well

as the poor, his gospel is full of the joy of salvation and the mercy of God.

Only in Luke�s gospel is found the story of the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan

and the Dying Thief.

St Luke�s Gospel will be read at Sunday Mass all this year. Listen to it well,

see things through St Luke�s eyes. Bring the Mass leaflet home with you and

read over the Gospel afterwards. Or follow it in your own bible at home.

You will see there that God is on your side, loving and forgiving you.

people there by Trocaire.
