Sr. Cynthia Bauer.OP,
“Compassion, the Heart of the Year of Mercy”
To understand Compassion in Our Lord’s public life is to get a glimpse of his hidden life. With this understanding comes a desire to reflect Christ in our own lives. There is no “app” for Compassion. You can only find it in your own heart.
