The Real Meaning of the Word Compassion!

In regards to A New Poll is Launched, see Monday, September 22, 2008, Anonymous writes ... "A good number of homeless people are people, that are mentally sick. Some of them; are so sick that literally speaking; they dont even know who they are, what their names are, or even realizing that they are living in the streets. Just based in this fact of their situation; it is totally irresponsible on our part to expect from them, that they can go, get a job, straighten up their lives or clean up their act. If we try at least, once in our lifetime, to open our hearts, and to put ourselves in their shoes, trying to think for a moment, what it will be, to be living a life like that, trying to really put ourselves in that people's skin, if only for a minute or a day. THAT is the real meaning of the word Compassion! That is what compassion is all about: To put myself, in the person's situation. To feel in my own skin the cold, the pain, the hunger, the desperation the solitude, the rejection of the others; my very own sisters and brothers, the total emptiness of the human soul. It is Christ again, living the Calvary and the Cross, dying; again and again, time after time, in a never ending Via Crucis [Way of the Cross]. I pray, that God will open our hearts just for a minute and really ask Him to have the opportunity to be the Simon of Cyrene for our brothers and sisters in need."
