The works of mercy are charitable actions

by which we come to the aid of our neighbor

in his spiritual and bodily necessities.

 

Instructing, advising, consoling, comforting

are spiritual works of mercy,

as are forgiving and bearing wrongs patiently.

 

the corporal works of mercy

consist especially in feeding the hungry,

sheltering the homeless,

clothing the naked,

visiting the sick and imprisoned, and burying the dead.

 

Among all these, giving alms to the poor

is one of the chief witnesses to fraternal charity:

it is also a work of justice pleasing to God.

Hello Jack,<br /> Tis the time of year. But the rest of the year is also very important. So don't let the giving be over after Christmas. Food pantry is open all year and a must for some families. <br /> Take care<br /> Trish
