A key component for understanding and participating in the Year of Mercy are the Works of Mercy. They are drawn up into two succinct lists from many different places in the scriptures. Reflecting on these passages will be necessary for our understanding of their importance for the Christian life. They serve as a checklist against which we can measure our fulfillment of the mandate, "Be Merciful Like the Father."
The Divine Mercy website has an excellent program that can be used by one person or as a study group program. I have links here for two of this 14 part series.
