Mercy Ministries

Jesus entrusted his followers the responsibility of caring for others. One way that Catholics fulfill this responsibility is by performing the Works of Mercy.

Mercy is one of the fruits of charity, which enables us to show love and compassion to those who are suffering in mind, body, heart or soul.

The Works of Mercy are divided into two categories:

  • The Corporal Works of Mercy (dealing with the body) and
  • The Spiritual Works of Mercy (dealing with the mind, heart, and soul).
