“Jesus introduces us to these works of mercy in his preaching so that we can know whether or not we are living as his disciples. Let us rediscover these corporal works of mercy: to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, heal the sick, visit the imprisoned, and bury the dead. And let us not forget the spiritual works of mercy: to counsel the doubtful, instruct the ignorant, admonish sinners, comfort the afflicted, forgive offences, bear patiently those who do us ill, and pray for the living and the dead.”
Pope Francis
Misericordiae Vultus, 15
SERVICE: Taking Care of His Suffering Body

Once we recognize the presence of Christ in our midst, we cannot help but respond in love to those who make up his suffering Body here within the St. Ambrose community and beyond. This includes those who are poor, sick, marginalized, frail, broken, persecuted and in special need. Working together, we can offer them our friendship, care, solidarity and attention to justice and peace.

Prayer for those who suffer

Dearest Lord, may I see you today and every day in the person of your sick, and, while nursing them, minister to you. Though you hide yourself behind the unattractive disguise of the irritable, the exacting, the unreasonable, may I still recognize you and say: 'Jesus, my patient, how sweet it is to serve you'. Amen.

-Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)
