Contemplating Compassion - Autumn Series' Final Note
The last of the six Wake Up The World To Mercy Autumn Series Seminars saw participants reflect on Compassion in the light of their personal story and within our current historical context.
Ms Claire Thomas, Director of Mission at OLMC Parramatta, led participants in a reflection on Compassion informed by Mercy Sister Breege O'Neill's article Called to Compassion.
Drawing on the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, the words of Pope Francis, Thomas Merton, and depictions of compassion in classical and contemporary art Claire challenged all present to consider our personal response to people and situations which call for a compassionate response.
This final seminar, concluded the Autumn Series of the Wake Up The World To Mercy Program.
The next series of seminars will begin in Spring.
