More and more I'm learnging to appreciate the enormous value of encouragement.

The video below is not ostensibly religious or spiritual but it gives some wonderfully practical help in actually carrying out the admonition of St. Paul in Romans 12 when he said, "Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep."

I think you can see how the suggestions in the video help us put the prayer attributed to St. Francis into practice: "Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand..."
