Prayer for Compassion – Fr Pedro Arrupe, SJ

Teach me how to be compassionate to the suffering, to the poor, the blind, the lame, and the lepers;

show me how you revealed your deepest emotions,

as when you shed tears,

or when you felt sorrow and anguish

to the point of sweating blood

and needed an angel to console you.

Above all, I want to learn

how you supported the extreme pain of the cross,

including the abandonment of your Father.

— Pedro Arrupe, SJ

from the book, “Hearts on Fire: Praying with the Jesuits
