Some people see help as a sign of weakness and they may be right, it is our weakness. A weakness to love, a weakness for compassion, a weakness for the eyes of the Lord in our neighbor. A weakness just like Veronica's when desperately runs towards the Lord to wipe his face, because she couldn't bear his acute pain in her heart. That is the weakness moved by love and St. Paul claims: "For when I am weak, I am strong". So Lord, may we find weakness in our hearts to love our brothers and sisters.
