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. Amen.

Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
