Lent 2018

Monday of the Third Week in Lent

Read

During Lent, it is important for us to remember the corporal works of mercy, which are found in the teachings of Jesus and give us a model for how we should treat all others: as if they were Christ in disguise.

Reflect

What small changes would allow you to perform corporal works of mercy: Can you allocate your time differently so you have a couple extra hours to volunteer? Do you discard food that could instead be donated to a local soup kitchen? When was the last time you participated in a blood drive?

Pray

With mercy on your mind, revisit Pope Francis's Year of Mercy Prayer.

Act

Pick one of the seven corporal works of mercy and do it this week!
