Corporal & Spiritual Works of Mersy  
Fr. James Kirkpatrick Dear Parishioners,

I have talked about two of the Spiritual Works of Mercy and referenced the Corporal Works of Mercy. I thought it would be important to give you the full list of both. These are great things to embrace and they all come from the teachings of Christ.
  The Corporal Works of Mercy are charitable actions for bodily needs:
  •  To feed the hungry;
  •  To give drink to the thirsty;
  •  To shelter the homeless;
  •  To visit the sick;
  •  To visit the prisoner;
  •  To bury the dead;
  •  To give alms to the poor
The Spiritual Works of Mercy are charitable actions for spiritual needs:
  •  To instmct the ignorant;
  •  To counsel the doubtful;
  •  To admonish sinners;
  • To bear wrongs patiently;
  • To forgive offences willingly;
  • To comfort the afflicted;
  • To pray for the living and the dead
Christ’s peace,
        Fr. Jim Kirkpatrick
