Chapter three was about compassion. Gregory Boyle asks the homies what the difference is between compassion, empathy, and sympathy, and they tell him what sympathy and empathy are, but they say compassion is something altogether different. Compassion was the center of Jesus' heart. We are asleep to be in the world who God is. My favorite story from this chapter was about Beitio. Betito was only twelve years old and was so energetic and funny. His "girl" was sixteen and he asked Father G to borrow money. One day, Betitio got hit with a bullet and died. He was only twelve years old and has so much left to do in his life. Nobody's life is more important than another.
