A Collect for Unity and Empathy

God of compassion, who feels the pain and the joys of those you love, give us hearts like yours that are bound to those of the family of Christ and of humanity, that we would so weep with the weeping and rejoice with the rejoicing that all that is done to one would be experienced by all, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. “And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’” – Matthew 25:40
