The Hebrew word for compassion is derived from the word womb, implying the need to feel for others because they are born of the same mother. God is that mother and we are all children of that womb and must accordingly feel with, and care for, each other as brothers and sisters. Compassion asserts that there is nothing more urgent than pain of another person because that other person is profoundly, intimately, deeply connected to us through our common incarnation.
