服务

Solidarity finds concrete expression in service, which can take a variety of forms in an effort to care for others . . . In offering such service, individuals learn to ‘set aside their own wishes and desires, their pursuit of power, before the concrete gaze of those who are most vulnerable… 服务 always looks to their faces, 触摸他们的肉体, senses their closeness and even, 在某些情况下, ‘suffers’ that closeness and tries to help them. 服务 is never ideological, for we do not serve ideas, we serve people. -Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti, #115
