The spiritual and corporal works of mercy are not a
list to be learnt but actions to be lived. Mark Shea gives great
examples of people who have performed the works of mercy and advice on
how we can practice them in the 21st Century. Pope Francisís Year of
Mercy is a call to each one of us to rediscover and to live the works of
Mercy every day.
Mark Shea is an American writer and blogger and apologist with a special interest in the writings of G K Chesterton.
