Blessed are the merciful

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.  The point is:  Think about it and then do SOMETHING!Works of Mercy

Mercy begins at home!

Don’t forget that you can get a lot of blessings!

Couldn’t you use a little mercy?
