It comes from far away, or maybe right next door. It might just be the wind or the greatest transgression of humanity, this quiet voice crying in the night. When we do not hear it, we lose all godly compassion for mankind. If we are truly followers of Christ, we must give ourselves over to God’s deep Love and Life, as He created it. After all, godly compassion is seeing others with deep love in our hearts, our souls. We need not know he language of our neighbor; we merely have to recognize him as also being God’s child and creation.
