A Voice from the Past - Leo the Great

But the wide extent of Christian grace has given us yet greater reasons for loving our neighbour, which, reaching to all parts of the whole world, looks down on no one, and teaches that no one is to be neglected.

Leo the Great, 400-460 AD, Sermons of Leo the Great, Sermon XII, II, (translated by Rev. Charles Lett Feltoe, The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Philip Schaff and Henry Wace, T & T Clark and Wm. B. Eerdmans  Publishing, 1997, Second Series, Volume XII, p.122)

What people might we be tempted to look down on or neglect? How does God's grace speak to this?
