Advent III - Intercessory Prayer of Mercy

One of the key ways that this Year of Mercy can be observed is to put into practice the Works of Mercy. They are -

CORPORAL WORKS of MERCY: Feed the hungry + Give drink to the thirsty + Clothe the naked + Shelter the homeless + Visit those in prison + Comfort the sick + Bury the dead.

SPIRITUAL WORKS of MERCY: Admonish sinners + Instruct the uninformed + Counsel the doubtful + Comfort the sorrowful + Be patient with those in error + Forgive offenses + Pray for the living and the dead.

Since this blog is devoted to the practice of prayer, a special page has been set up that will be a resource for the Spiritual Work - Praying for the Living and the Dead.


This Year of Mercy is directly associated with the Church's focus on Evangelization. The Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization will be responsible for the various resources associated with the observance of this Jubilee Year. This will be a year full of grace and prayer will be key in our observance of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
