God is Compassionate

"The word compassion comes from two Latin words: passio, meaning 'to suffer,' and cum, meaning 'with.' To say that God has compassion for the victims of injustice is to say that he actually 'suffers with' them. At the root of God's compassion is the fact that he sees, witnesses, directly observes the suffering of the abused."
