51 Creative Ways to Show Mercy This Year

Wow. Another new year is fast approaching. I swear two minutes ago “High School musical” was premiering on Disney channel. But, alas 2016 is upon us. With a new year means new exciting things on the horizon, new opportunities, and new ways to grow in your faith. Pope Francis announced an extraordinary jubilee, a Holy Year of Mercy, to highlight the Catholic Church’s “mission to be a witness of mercy.”

The special year will take place Dec. 8, 2015 until Nov. 20, 2016. What an exciting time to be alive! So what does this mean for us young people? How can we implement the year of Mercy into our everyday life? After much brainstorming and sleepless nights (that’s sarcasm) I came up with 51 ideas based off of corporal works of mercy that you can do throughout the year. Some are easy everyday things, others are something you can do with a group of friends, youth group, or even as a service project in college. Without further to do here are 51 ideas for the year of Mercy.
