"BE MERCIFUL EVEN AS YOUR FATHER IS MERCIFUL." (LUKE 6:36)
For the month of April the Corporal work of Mercy is: Feed the Hungry.
Whenever we pray the Our Father we say, “Give us this day our daily bread.” We ask God for what we need because we believe that what we have is his gift. In this corporal work of mercy, we are reminded that just as we ask our loving Father to provide our sustenance each day, we, in turn, are called to share what we have with those who confront food insecurity so that everyone can be nourished in body and in soul.
“Feeding the hungry is an ethical imperative for the universal Church … the elimination of world hunger has … become a requirement for safeguarding the peace and stability of the planet.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, #27)
