In a three-part series, Kitty Wheater, Mindfulness Chaplain, explores the idea of compassion and what it means to situate this understanding in the pandemic we’re living through. This piece was originally published in full on the Chaplaincy website.
Compassion is attentiveness to the suffering of ourselves and others, with the wisdom and steps taken to relieve it. Compassion calls forth action, but with the wisdom to know when, how and what is required.
