From a reader…
Today I was reading Misericordiae vultus and noticed that, in section 15 on the Works of Mercy, [Pope Francis] gives both full lists of 7 works, and then goes on to expand on all 7 of the Corporal Works but only 6 of the Spiritual.
The Spiritual Work he doesn’t expand on is “admonish the sinner.”
Thoughts on this?
Sure. I have thoughts about this. But I can only speculate.
It’s a no brainer, for a Year of Mercy, to urge people to practice the all the Corporal and all the Spiritual Works of Mercy. All of them, and not just the easy ones. Right?
Perhaps someone should ask Fr. Lombardi.
