“No one heals himself by wounding another”
[Saint Ambrose]

Wounds run deep, and heal slowly. Scars may never fade. Pain may be inflicted on another, yet the wound always remains with those that execute.
“Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity” writes Arthur Jersild. “It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and the deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment.”

May we be blessed to offer love and compassion to all and unto ourselves.
