"The deeply hidden silent suffering at the center of reality does not leave any human being untouched. Only by acknowledging this hidden suffering that binds our heart to the heart of all human beings can we become truly compassionate people who do not add violence to violence by good intentions...

"The hidden quality of all suffering...calls us to live our small lives in compassionate solidarity with all humanity, a humanity destined to be raised up by a new creation. By reaching out to the suffering...we come in touch with the source of joy, precisely because joy is not the opposite of suffering but hidden in the very center of it. True joy is always found where we move to the very heart of the empty tomb of humanity."

~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
