Chapter 3 Compassion
The theme of this chapter is Compassion. I think Compassion means sympathy towards others. I think Compassion is used towards others especially dealing with suffering. My favorite story in chapter three that shows Compassion is when Looney comes to Father Greg's office and says that he has gotten straight A's. He only got one A but Father Greg doesn't mention it to him because he doesn't want to ruin his excitement, instead he tells Looney that he's proud of him.
Chapter 7 Gladness
The theme of this chapter is gladness. I think in this chapter it means being greatful for everything you have. In this chapter, my favorite story is when Father Greg takes Adam and Ricky on a flight with him to speak. He brings them because they were involved with gangs and then their little brother was killed for it. He brought them because he thought they needed it. I like the story because once the plane takes off they are so amazed and are both looking out the window. It makes me realize how lucky I am.
