The Love of Christ

SimoneWeil1“The capacity to give one’s attention to a sufferer is a very rare and difficult thing; it is almost a miracle; it is a miracle. Nearly all those who think they have this capacity do not possess it. Warmth of heart, impulsiveness, pity, are not enough.”

                                                          -Simone Weil 

For Reflection:

What do you consider to be the characteristics and virtues of a person who knows how to give one’s attention to a sufferer? Think of the saints who were able to do this – what do you think separated them from others?
