The Corporal Works of Mercy are found in the teachings of Jesus and give us a model for how we should treat all others, as if they were Christ in disguise. They are acts of charity which we help our neighbors in their needs. They respond to the basic needs of humanity as we journey together through this life. As we take a moment to reflect on these PICK ONE! PICK TWO OR THREE. Imagine our hungry, lonely, war- torn world if EVERY PERSON did just one work? Ponder these in your heart. But most importantly listen to the whisper of the Holy Spirit for a human need will be before your eyes and pray that you would be so moved as to reach out and comfort, raise up those bowed down.
