Compassion is a skill that can be learned, practiced and cultivated.  However it is not new.
Compassion has always been a essential component of major religions.

Pope Francis offers us simple compassionate advice on ‘how to be happy.’

  • Live and let live
  • Be giving of yourself to others
  • Proceed calmly in life
  • Have a healthy sense of leisure
  • Sunday is for family
  • Be “creative” with young people and find innovative ways to create dignified jobs
  • Respect and take care of nature
  • Stop being negative. Letting go of negative things quickly is healthy
  • The worst thing of all is religious proselytism, which paralyzes
  • Work for peace. We are living in a time of many war. The call for peace must be shouted
