The Corporal Works of Mercy

  1. Feed the hungry
  2. Give drink to the thirsty
  3. Shelter the homeless
  4. Clothe the naked
  5. Visit the sick
  6. Visit the imprisoned
  7. Bury the dead

These are the 7 Corporal Works of Mercy. Please help us brainstorm some concrete ways that we can live out these Works. For example:

#1 Feed the Hungry (we could volunteer at a soup kitchen, make meals for shut-in neighbors, etc...).


Please post your other ideas as "Comments" and I will compile a list and add them to a blog post for easy veiwing and access to all.

These can be things that we can do as individuals in our own neighborhoods, and also those we can do in groups on a more "global" basis.

Give them an old jacket. Donate old clothes blankets etc, to a homeless shelter.
