Compassion, a sense of solidarity with others—with all life—arising from a wish for mutual happiness and growth, is the heart and origin of Buddhism. In the original Sanskrit Buddhist texts, the concept of compassion is described by the words maitri and anukampa. The New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and Jesus: A Pilgrimage turns his attention to the relationship between LGBT Catholics and the Church in this loving, inclusive, and revolutionary book.. On the day after the Orlando nightclub shooting, James Martin S.J. posted a video on Facebook in which he called for solidarity with our LGBT brothers and sisters.

  Sacred Scripture reminds us that God hears the cry of the poor (cf. Ps ) and the Church must heed the cry of those most in need. Hearing their voice, “she must live with the poor and share their distress. By her lifestyle, her priorities, her words and her actions, she must testify that she is in communion and solidarity with them.” 4. Solidarity is what caused white men and women along with Jews to travel southward during the summer of for Freedom Summer. Solidarity is what caused many to converge on Selma and march to Montgomery to place pressure for the Voting Rights Act. Solidarity is what causes one to be willing to take risky action.

Compassion arises from a sense of shared humanity, from solidarity, respect and a profound awareness of interconnectedness. In contrast, pity is characterized by a sense of separation or distance between ourselves and others; it is a form of condescension.   Compassion is NOT sympathy. Sympathy is what the world gives, or what I would call the worldly counterfeit of compassion, and is short lived for the most part. There is no empathy to it. Empathos is one of the Greek words for compassion, and it has to do with experiencing what others .

[Solidarity] is not a feeling of vague compassion or shallow distress at the misfortunes of so many people, both near and far. On the contrary, it is a firm and persevering determination to commit oneself to the common good; that is to say, to the good of all and of each individual, because we are all really responsible for all.

(St. Compassion - by Henri Nouwena short review by Tim SuttleThis short book plainly titled Compassion: A Reflection on the Christian Life by Nouwen. Solidarity helps us to see the “other”—whether a person, people, or nation—not just as some kind of instrument, with a work capacity and physical strength to be exploited at low cost and then discarded when no longer useful, but as our “neighbor,” a “helper” (cf.

), to be made a sharer, on a par with ourselves, in the. The inherent potential for hostility in the face of hospitality tells us why solidarity is so vital alongside compassion.

Solidarity implies identifying a community of interest with the incoming stranger. Identifying the possibility that your suffering is also my suffering and therefore common interests.

While this book hasnt influenced my day-to-day thinking as much as some other Nouwen books, I think this says more about my current level of distraction than it does the quality of the observations and insights found in Compassion, though its possible that Nouwens co-authorship with two other authors on this one slightly reduces the tone of intimacy most of his books offer/5(92).

The concrete expressions of Christian compassion and solidarity, as coordinates of society’s types of association, do not necessarily go beyond the forms allowed for social reproduction.

That's compassion -- entering into the feelings of others. It's the basis for reconciliation. That's how people begin to come together, when someone is.

Question: "What does the Bible say about solidarity?" Answer: Solidarity is unity or agreement among individuals who have a common interest. Teams, clubs, and organizations are built upon the solidarity of their members. We create solidarity when we gravitate toward groups of people who think or believe as we do.
