Reflection for 26th August 2012

“Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.”

Simone Weil, philosopher and mystic, d. August 24, 1943

(Reflections are provided each week by a member of the congregation.)
