Revolution


"Caritas" The Seven Acts of Mercy, pen and ink drawing by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1559.[1]

If every one of us, every day, does a work of mercy, there will be a revolution in the world!
Pope Francis on Twitter 2016-11-15

The traditional seven acts of mercy include: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, freeing the imprisoned, burying the dead, sheltering the stranger, comforting the sick, and clothing the naked. 

What might these look like in our world today? What is my "work of mercy" for today?
