The Corporal Works of Mercy

Feed the hungry
Give drink to the thirsty
Shelter the homeless and welcome immigrants and refugees
Clothe the naked
Visit the sick
Visit prisoners
Bury the dead

The Spiritual Works of Mercy

Admonish the sinner
Instruct the ignorant
Counsel the doubtful
Comfort the sorrowful
Bear wrongs patiently
Forgive injuries
Pray for the living and the dead
