I would say that we have many opportunities to practice the Spiritual Works of Mercy, some of us, however, hesitate. Speaking for myself, I can't tell you why unless fear steps into the picture -- and we all know that fear (that kind of fear, at least) comes from the evil one below.
Lord forgive me, and grant me new insights and courage in this area.
Catholic Discussion Ping!

Found this footnote interesting in the Corporal Works of Mercy.
I am not good at getting up in people's grills about their sinning as I am such a sinner myself. It seems hypocritical for me. However practicing one and two on the list, as i have mentioned I do above, can be a strong corrective and preventative as well. Blessings to all!!!
Number Two Pray.
Number Three Pray.
If you really know God which really comes from praying, all else will follow. The Holy Spirit will prompt you.
Read the scriptures and the catechism
Do as required
Go to Mass
Watch the Mass(TVor Web streaming)
If you watch or go Mass in 3 years you heard most of the Bible
Eventually you will grow from a baby Christian to a fully mature Christian
Of course God is showing us something with this post
Thank you Salvation.
What happened to your last thread on same?
This one, I really found intriguing!
The 4 Sins that Cry Out to Heaven
The sin of Sodom
Oppression of the poor
Defrauding laborers of their wages
Genesis 4, Genesis 18, Exodus 2, James 5, respectively.
I recognize the Scriptures for all of them, but never saw them lined up together in this fashion.
Thank you for this post, Salvation.
Well, this weekend my family will be praying for the dead. A church friend is having a memorial service for her father, whom we have never actually met. But we are invited, and we will honor his life and stand with our friend.

Oh, you cover a lot of territory Salvation. I can’t keep up with you ... :)
Actually, I think these are not difficult — except for “Admonish the sinner” and, especially “Beary wrongs patiently”.
Beary = Bear
I think most of the Catholics here on FR do this daily. I can not speak for everyone, however.
I attended a funeral Mass today. It was the wife of one of my deceased uncles. (Actually, all of my uncles are deceased. The death of this lady leaves only one from my father’s generation still with us in my family. She was the wife of another uncle. My da had 10 brothers and sisters.)
