19 Jul COMPASSION IS CONTAGIOUS
“Compassion is Contagious “
Pacifier for stress: A young mother was describing a terrible day she had experienced. The washing machine broke down, the telephone kept ringing, her head ached, and the mail carrier brought a bill she had no money to pay. Almost to the breaking point, she lifted her one-year-old into his highchair, leaned her head against the tray, and began to cry. Without a word, her son took his pacifier out of his mouth and stuck it in hers. It goes with the pressures of modern life. Some of us are stressed out, and we are tired. Today’s Gospel prescribes a way out for stress.
