Patron Saint of?

I am attempting to do a post a day, on subjects the wonderful folk at The Daily Post think up. Today’s is a cracker. In 300 years, if I was to be named the patron saint of something, what would I like it to be? I didn’t even need to ponder. I would unequivocally choose compassion. Compassion encompasses so many other virtues. I don’t believe we can summon the courage necessary to stand up for ourselves and others without first having compassion. Compassion inspires warm regard, to believe that we are worth fighting for, as are other people. To be courageous without compassion is dangerous. We can come across as fired-up and obstinate. Compassion is closely related to empathy. We can’t love without having a compassionate heart, nor can we form meaningful relationships, or communicate wisely without it.  Yes, if I am to be Patron Saint of anything, I would like it to be compassion.
