The Merciful Person
Blessing in the name of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Please let me share with you what I have read today:
"The merciful person is he who gives to others what he has himself received from God, whether it be money, or food, or strength, a helpful word, a prayer, or anything else that he has through which he can express his compassion for those in need. At the same time he considers himself indebted, since he has received more than he is asked to give."
--St. Peter of Damaskos
"الإنسان الرحيم هو الذي يعطي الآخرين مما أخذه هو من الله، سواء كان مال أو طعام أو معونة أو كلمة نافعة أو صلاة أو أي شئ آخر لديه به يعبر عن ترفقه بالمحتاجين. وفي نفس الوقت يعتبر نفسه مديونا لأن ما يأخذه (من الله) أكثر من المطلوب منه أن يعطيه."
القديس بطرس الدمشقي
Pray for me as I pray for you all.
