Compassion

In the Gospels Jesus is often moved with compassion. Our God is a God of compassion, and compassion – we can say – is the weakness of God but also God’s strength. If compassion is the language of God so often human language is that of indifference.”

Pope Francis, Homily 17 September 2019
