Grace of Compassion 3-19-2021

“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”

Excerpt From
Intimate Conversations with the Divine
