In the spirit of Pope Francis' newest book, The Works of Mercy, we are hosting an evening lecture series this academic year on the corporal works of mercy. Though sometimes worded slightly differently, the traditional 7 corporal works of mercy are
  • Feed the hungry.
  • Give drink to the thirsty.
  • Welcome the stranger.
  • Ransom the captive.
  • Bury the dead.
  • Clothe the naked.
  • Visit the sick.
Learn more about the 7 corporal works of mercy here. And explore their parallel, the 7 spiritual works of mercy, which focus on the spiritual well-being of others.
