Blessed are the merciful

Posted on Updated on

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Mt 5:1-12

Beatitudes 4

Pope Francis asks us to concentrate on being merciful as we begin the Year of Mercy on December 8, 2015, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception .

Take the challenge to do one of the Corporal Works of Mercy every week!  You can probably start at
home and then branch out!  I bet you could do one of these a day.  Visiting someone in prison or burying the dead is probably not one that you can do.  You could pray for someone who has died.  You could even send a card to someone you know is sick or check on people who live alone.  Check with your parents if you are under 18.  They probably have a few ideas!  The point is:  Think about it and then do SOMETHING!
