Yes, I agree. Maybe start up a devotion to the Divine Mercy or Sacred Heart? What always helps me when it comes to charity is to remember the weight of the sins on that person which is causing them to be miserable. Never forget to empathize with others who are relentlessly cast about by sin and temptation. Remember that we're on a battlefield, so we need to have mercy and love for our wounded brethren.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
