Dear Parent/Guardian,

You, then, are the body of Christ. Every one of you is a member of it.

1 Corinthians 27

 

Last week we were reminded that the word MERCY is shown in compassion, forgiveness, kindness, sympathy, and tolerance. The Spiritual works of mercy are just that, works that will support others spiritually.

 

This week let us take a look at the Corporal Works of Mercy. These acts afford us the opportunity to bring mercy to those who need their body taken care of. We have all contributed to food drives, donated clothing to organizations, visited people we know who are sick, expressed our sympathies to those who have experienced a death. These experiences are ways that we support our families, friends, and community without even thinking that we are practicing the corporal works of mercy.

 

This week pay attention to the times you practice these works. You may be surprised at the number of times you will reach out to those in need.

 

THE CORPORAL WORKS OF MERCY ARE:

Feed the hungry

Give drink to the thirsty

Clothe the naked

Shelter the homeless

Visit the sick

Visit the imprisoned

Bury the dead
