We have so many simple opportunities to share the Lord's never-ending mercy. It's my goal to pray more for those who are in desperate need of God's mercy! MATTHEW CHARTIER I am working a lot on praying for those that have hurt me and those I have hurt, which is the Spiritual Work of forgiving wrongs. When we forgive wrongs, we not only have to forgive others of the wrongs they have done to us, but we also have to forgive ourselves and let God forgive us for the wrongs we have done. Seminarians Say... During this Holy Year of Mercy, how are you living out the year through the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy? A few of our diocesan seminarians were asked: THOMAS MERKEL I am working on bearing wrongs patiently. I want to do this especially in little things that involve other people, such as waiting in the lunch line or behind a lot of cars in traffic. These can be frustrating moments, but are also opportunities for grace. BENJAMIN RIVARD I'm currently living out the Corporal Works of Mercy by visiting the sick. I take Communion to a nursing home weekly. I also pray with them and we talk about pretty much anything. It really makes my day when I'm able to comfort someone who might be a bit lonely.
