Mission of Mercy
 “For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger and you made me welcome; naked and you clothed me; sick and you visited me; in prison and you came to see so far as you did this to the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me”  (Mt 25: 35-36, 40)
“In the corporal works of mercy we touch the flesh of Christ in our brothers and sisters who need to be fed, clothed, sheltered, visited...” (Pope Francis)
