“Sometimes this word is said silently, and sometimes it is said in a shout.  Many times it is just obvious to the eye, and this is where charity should come about.  Not that charity should not respond to the call or the shout, but it is necessary to be sensitive to the needs of others, and not always wait until they have to cry out quietly, or in a shout.
