"I would like to recall (the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy), because it will be good to hear them again: to feed the hungry; to give drink to the thirsty; to clothe the naked; to harbor the homeless; to visit the sick; to visit the imprisoned; to bury the dead. I encourage you to carry on your work with joy and to model it after Christ's, allowing all who suffer to encounter you and count on you in time of need." (Pope Francis, June 14, 2014)
Spiritual Adoption Reminder: "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion."
