OCTOBER - EMPATHY


October: Empathy

 

God wants us to care about everyone's feelings.

 

 

Judge your neighbours feelings by your own, and in every matter, be thoughtful.

(Sir 31: 15)


 

 

OUR DAILY PRAYER FOR OCTOBER: EMPATHY

Let us now pray... for the grace and strength to be people of empathy-people who can really identify with and feel the concerns of those around us.
AMEN

 


An empathetic person...

 

  • listens when people speak

  • notices when someone is upset and tries to help

  • can name her-his feelings

  • can see a situation from another persons point of view

  • accepts that others have different perspectives


Judge your neighbours feelings by your own and let every matter be thoughtful.  There are days in our lives  that we may see others come to school sad, afraid, frustrated, or even angry.  To live the virtue of EMPATHY is not to judge those people because we never know what others are holding in their hearts.  In your everyday life try to remember that you may not always understand what others are feeling, but you can always be a good friend.

If you cant feed a hundred people, then feed just one. 

Mother Teresa

Life's most urgent question is: what are you doing for others. 

      Martin Luther King Jr.

 

CAN YOU THINK OF A TIME WHEN YOUR FRIEND CAME TO SCHOOL SAD AND YOU HELPED MAKE THEM HAPPY?
