To be a parish radically committed to love – a word from the Talmud

Oh Lord, save us from ourselves! Let us choose life. As the Talmudic saying goes,

“When you save one life, you save the world”

Talmud, Sanhedrin 37a states:
“FOR THIS REASON WAS MAN CREATED ALONE, TO TEACH THEE THAT WHOSOEVER DESTROYS A SINGLE SOUL… SCRIPTURE IMPUTES [GUILT] TO HIM AS THOUGH HE HAD DESTROYED A COMPLETE WORLD; AND WHOSOEVER PRESERVES A SINGLE SOUL…, SCRIPTURE ASCRIBES [MERIT] TO HIM AS THOUGH HE HAD PRESERVED A COMPLETE WORLD.”

…from the same tongue can come either life or death, it is your choice!
