Prayer Pledge 2017: Day 24

The Corporal Works of Mercy can feel intimidating, but they don’t have to be.

Reflect today on how simple acts can be acts of mercy.

Feed the hungry: make a meal with what’s already in your pantry, avoiding food waste.

Clothe the naked: deliver a few items to a shelter or Goodwill. Don’t only choose the most threadbare items.

Give drink to the thirsty: mind your water use and turn off the tap when it doesn’t need to be running.

Comment below with your thoughts:

What are some ways you can do Corporal Works of Mercy every day?

or, simply answer:

Did you pray today?

    I went to the usccb website for which you provided the link at the corporal works of mercy. I love the suggestions. I had not thought that my regular blood donation is anything more than a blood donation. All the suggestions were practical.

    For me it was having a honest, heartfelt conversation with my very Pro Choice niece who proudly attended the march last Saturday. I didn’t get very far but we both listened to each other… praying I can be an example, not a stone thrower.

    To smile and just be yourself. Shine the light of God to those who need it the most.
