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
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!
Mercy begins at home!
Don’t forget that you can get a lot of blessings!
Couldn’t you use a little mercy?
