Sigh for compassion

And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.   —Matthew 14:14

One of the most compelling calls for compassionate living is chapter 13 of St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. When I hear it read, I often think of a story a teacher at a church school told me years ago. She was preparing her class to read the chapter aloud at a special assembly. They were fourth or fifth graders as I recall, and though they could read it intelligibly, none of the spirit was coming through. She decided to read it to them, putting all the feeling she could into it.
