Along the daily way of the cross, we meet the faces of so many brothers and sisters in difficulty: let us not pass by, let us allow our hearts to be moved with compassion, and let us draw near.Pope Francis
The call to discipleship requires us to do more than study and pray. We are also called to act. The corporal works of mercy are a good way to think about concrete ways to help those around us. Practicing the works of mercy help us understand the needs of others.
