Our virtue of the quarter is a virtue with two parts. COMPASSION has an affective part (heartfelt sympathy) and an effective part (action to relieve another’s distress). As you read, talk, and think about compassion look for ways to cultivate feelings of sympathy and practice acts of mercy. You can use the suggestions in our Virtue Home Connection poster or come up with your own.
