The Work of Mercy: Being the Hands and Heart of Christ


At the very heart of the Gospel are the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Just as Jesus was God “hidden” in the flesh, mercy is the incarnational echo of God’s presence in our world. His light shines forth through you and me, powerfully illuminating the dark places and guiding us along the path of sanctification.  In The Work of Mercy, we take a good look at these fourteen forms of service to the weak, defenseless, and poor that have been embedded in the Christian tradition from the beginning and learn how each of them must and can be carried out today by God’s people.  Spiritual and practical, The Work of Mercy helps a 21st Century reader live the ancient teaching of the One who said, “as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.”
