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.
