"Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn." (Romans 12:15)
This is St Paul at his simplest – offering an illustration of what love is. The last weeks have given us so many examples of love in action. Discovering how someone else is feeling can be a powerful trigger to sharing their pain or their joy. Being with someone physically is our natural way of sharing grief and joy; but even in separation we can mourn or rejoice with them as we feel what they feel.
