Compassion and truth go together. The truth is God. Why make life complicated and hard when God is simplicity itself. There is only right and wrong with God. There is no other way but to walk in the light.
If you walk away from the light you are on the wrong road to God. The light of God keeps you on his path walking towards him and by receiving the Eucharist at mass everyday you are receiving your spiritual food to keep you on the path of light.
