Think About It
- Identify an ‘angel of grace’ in your life. Someone famous or known only to those in your local area, who embodies living out this corporal work of mercy. Do you know what inspires their actions? If not, can you explore further?
- Dorothy Day would insist, “those who cannot see the face of Christ in the poor are atheists indeed.” Who are the poor in your neighbourhood? What are some of the challenges in seeing the ‘face of Christ’ in them?
- Change begins with ‘me’ in the ordinary actions of life. Is there something proactive you could do this year to engage more closely with the needy?
