"BE MERCIFUL EVEN AS YOUR FATHER IS MERCIFUL." (LUKE 6:36)
For the month of September the Corporal work of Mercy is:
Shelter the Homeless.
In those who are homeless, the face of Christ is revealed. Recall the story of Christmas. When Mary and Joseph sought a place to stay, they found no room in the inn. The Christ-child, then, was born in a manger in a stable. His very birth showed forth his humility and his wish to witness the infinite love of his Father for the downtrodden and the homeless. Sheltering the homeless allows a person to live with self-respect and dignity.
“… Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today, I must stay at your house.” (Lk 19:5)
