Marriage Minute

Easter begins the season of Mercy!  Have you ever wondered, “How do the Works of Mercy apply to family life?”   God’s beautiful plan for family allows the Works of Mercy to be practiced daily.

Corporal Works of mercy:
• Give Drink to the thirsty; ever give your child a cold lemonade on a hot day?
• Feed the hungry; ever prepare dinner for the family?
• Visit the imprisoned; ever visit your child while he is in time out?
• Visit the sick; ever visit your sick child at 3am to make sure they are ok?
• Shelter the homeless; ever make a mortgage payment to provide the house you live in?
• Clothe the naked; ever give a baby a new diaper and onesie?
• Bury the dead: ever make sure a loved one receives proper burial?
