To always hold one's ear attentive
to the cry of pain of others
and listen to their plea for help…
is solidarity.

To always hold one's eyes and ears
attentive to the ocean
in search of a cast-away in danger…
is solidarity.

To feel as one's own the suffering of
a brother or sister near or far;
to make one's own the anguish of the poor…
is solidarity.

To become the voice of the humble,
to uncover injustice and evil,
to denounce the unjust and the evil doer…
is solidarity.

To allow one's self to carry a message
full of hope, love, and peace,
until it squeezes the hand of a brother or sister…
is solidarity

To transform one's self into the messenger
of a sincere and fraternal embrace
that one nation sends to other nations…
is solidarity.

To share the dangers of the struggle
to live in justice and freedom,
risking everything with love, even life…
is solidarity.

To surrender one's self for love, even one's life
is the greatest test of friendship;

Catholic teaching: We are all one human family in the world. Because we realize our dignity, rights, and responsibilities in relationship with others, we need to continue to build a community that empowers people to attain their full human potential. By working for justice, we fulfill our mandate to build the body of Christ.

Scriptural references: 1 Corinthians 12: 24-26 — If one suffers, all suffer.
Matthew 25: 31-46 — Christ is identified with all people. Whatever we do to our neighbor, we do to Christ
