Through the years I've lived, I've come to distinguish absolutely between pain observed and pain shared. Pain observed is journalistic pain. It’s diplomatic pain. It’s television pain, over as soon as you switch off your beastly set. Those who watch suffering and do nothing about it are just a little better than those who inflict it. They are the bad Samaritans. Celebrate the love of Christ and his Sacrifice by showing kindness today and every day. If you run out of poor people, or people in pain, just post a word in our comments section here or find me/us and we’ll guide you to many more people in need of a tiny tweeny bit of kindness.
Be kind. Kindness is a virtue characterised by good and affectionate behaviour, pleasant temperament, care and compassion for other people. Aristotle in some writings defined it as "helpfulness towards someone in need, not in return for anything, nor for the advantage of the helper himself, but for that of the person helped.” Kindness profoundly affects the lives of the people we come across daily and it feels good. I have found out for myself that being kind to others is really a way to be kind to one-self.
Show your love for God by being kind to one person every day. Kindness inspires kindness.
