Archbishop Naumann's 3rd Key Initiative of the 10-Year Mutually Shared Vision

 

The Works of Mercy

"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."

   - The Catechism of the Catholic Church (2447)
