Relationships of Compassion: Jesus and Women

August 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free-will Offering
Relationships of Compassion

Join Sister Mary Ann Strain, CP on August 12 on Zoom for Relationships of Compassion: Jesus and Women.

It can be said that the gospels provide us with two portraits; a portrait of Jesus of course and a portrait of the Christian. Another way to say it is that in the Gospels we can find out what God is like and what we are supposed to be like.

The dictionary defines compassion as the sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it. During the last several months we have been both moved by the compassion by many and horrified by the callousness of others.

We will explore how, in the gospels, Jesus is often “moved with compassion” and sometimes met with compassion, mostly from women. The stories of these compassionate encounters paint a portrait. By studying the portrait we can learn how to be compassionate persons ourselves and how to respond to a compassionate God.
