A quote from Pope Francis:
“One of the things that is lost when there is too much comfort, or values are not well-understood, or we get used to injustice, to this throwaway culture, is the capacity to weep. It is a grace that we must ask for. … We Christians must ask for the grace to weep, especially those Christians who are well-off, to weep about injustice and sin. Weeping opens you to the understanding of new realities or new dimensions of reality.”
