"BE MERCIFUL EVEN AS YOUR FATHER IS MERCIFUL." (LUKE 6:36)
For the month of October the Corporal work of Mercy is:
Give Drink to the Thirsty.
Water is essential to human survival. Giving Drink to the Thirsty challenges us to find the means to provide safe drinkable water for all as a recognition of their human dignity. It is not just our bodies, however, that thirst. Our souls thirst as well for the living God. Showing mercy to others includes sharing the joy of the Gospel with those whose lives are dry from a lack of meaning.
“Sir, give me this water, so that I may not be thirsty or have to keep coming here to draw water” (Jn 4:15).
