Compassion

At moments like these [pain, struggle, suffering],
 
Jesus never delivered sermons about judgment
 
or the need to accept God's mysterious providence.
 
Instead he responded with compassion---

a word from Latin which simply means "to suffer with"---

and comfort and healing.
  
God stands on the side of those who suffer.
