Do these works of mercy apply specifically to the individual spiritual seeker? Does practicing mercy in the realm of body and soul have anything to do with your relationship with Jesus Christ? Yes, yes, and yes indeed! Jesus Christ showed us what it means to live as "embodied spirits," body and soul united into one, single nature. He taught us the relationship between our body and soul, how they relate, that each must be cared for and attended to; that to practice mercy means providing for and nurturing our neighbor, body and soul. Rooted in Scripture and sacred Tradition, The Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy: Living Christian Love and Compassion communicates the mercy of Jesus Christ -- and how to model that mercy in your own life -- in ways having both bodily and spiritual effects. As noted in the Introduction, Mitch Finley presents "a spirituality for regular folks who live in the real, everyday world...a program of faith for the home and the workplace and all the ordinary places in-between that we all inhabit on a daily basis." What does it mean to "admonish the sinner"? To "bear wrongs patiently"? To "clothe the naked" and "bury the dead"? It means to share in the mercy of Christ. Mitch Finley offers practical advice and firm encouragement in guiding you to living the Christian love and compassion of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Book jacket.… (more)
