This is the beginning of something I hope will move us, as Americans, Christians and human beings, to recognize and live out the Corporal and Spiritual works of mercy.
I will post here my thoughts on helping others, review books and articles that talk about social issues in our country and our world, and list opportunities to live out the works of mercy.
I look forward to hearing about your experiences helping others in your communities, or opportunities that you know about that are in line with the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
We have heard a lot about change lately..it seems to be overused and undervalued. Together, with prayer, hard work, and sacrifice we can make a difference. We can do something to effect real change in the lives of others.
So get involved! Get moving! Roll up your sleeves and dig in! In the words of Mother Teresa:
"Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person. "
