Living the Works of Mercy

(1 Review)

By Ellen P. Cavanaugh



Draw young people to participate in the life, mission, and work of your faith community. Empower your young disciples to actively build a civilization of love, by teaching them skills for putting faith into action.

Faith comes alive for teens when we encourage them to participate in the life, mission, and work of our faith communities. Living the Works of Mercy contains strategies to help young people live the traditional works of mercy in today's society. The corporal works of mercy (oriented toward junior high students) include visiting the sick, feeding the hungry, and welcoming the stranger. The spiritual works of mercy (oriented toward high school students) include converting the sinner, instructing the ignorant, forgiving injuries, and counseling those who doubt. Chapters include prayer experiences, Scripture-based presentations, practical handouts, Internet resource listings, and outreach activity suggestions. Two retreats are also included.
