This chapter was about understanding other people's problems and struggles. Father G says "it is what God presses on us". I think this means that once you find Kinship and also find God, Gladness, compassion, and other things. I think all of the meanings of the chapters, all together, mean Kinship. My favorite story was about Chico. One night Chico was shot and was in the hospital, not doing very good. A week later Chico's heart stops beating. At the funeral, G decides to go over to a tree alone and think about the loss he had just had. G usually doesn't cry, but he starts to cry. Kinship can also mean related in some way and I think this relates because G became so close to him that when Chico died, for Father G it was like losing his own son.
