Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar. – Psalm 138:6
Offering kindness requires awareness of people who are experiencing injustice, and suffering violence at the hands of others. God takes the time to be aware of us, to see our needs and to respond by doing whatever it takes to offer us loving kindness – even giving us Jesus. As the diseases of COVID-19 and racism continue to infect our world, Jesus calls us to look with kindness upon His beloved people who experience fear, injustice and hatred. These beautiful people need to experience God’s loving kindness as it flows through us.

Prayer Of Saint Francis 

Lord, make me and instrument of Thy peace;

Where there is hatred, let me bring love;

Where there is injury pardon;

Where there is doubt faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

Where there is sadness, joy;

And all for they mercy’s sake.

O divine Master, grant that I many not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

To be understood as to understand;

To be loved as to love;

For it is giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
