May Virtue Compassion
This month we celebrate the virtue of compassion. As Jesus went from town to town teaching, he had a great deal of compassion for everyone he met, especially the poor, the sick and the suffering. Compassion is not only the ability to understand and identify with another person’s feelings, but compassion is also the ability to act on behalf of that other person. It is evident when we care deeply and want to help others, even if we do not know them. It is being kind and forgiving to someone who has hurt you.
We practice COMPASSION when we:
*are helpful to a person or animal in need
*notice when someone is hurt or needs a friend
*imagine how another person might be feeling
*take time to show you care
*forgive others when they make mistakes
*reach out in the larger community to share our resources and skills.
Let us pray today for the understanding and the courage to be compassionate to those who need our help in our classrooms, in our school community, in our local community, and in the world.
