Forgive me when

Forgive me when the new song of the gospel does not lead me to a new life of caring for others. Forgive me when the satisfaction of being in your presence does not lead me through the sacrifice of serving in the community. Forgive me when I can be just us disconnected and merciless as the priest or the Levite in the parable of the good Samaritan, who enjoyed your real presents and then proceeded to ignore real need.
