“Compassion is not a mental force; it is a grace.
Compassion calls us to act in ways that baffle our reason.
Compassion does not weigh the scales of what a person should have done or could have done.
Compassion dissolves self-righteousness and moves us to act as we would have others treat us in our moments of greatest need.
Lord, I need the grace of Compassion—and the grace of courage to let Compassion do its work on me. What good is Compassion if I try to control how much I feel and toward whom? I have to confront my fear of opening my heart”
