Works of mercy

"Christ is the revelation and the incarnation of the mercy of the Father" (John Paul II, RM 12). He reveals and embodies the mercy of God through the greatest work of mercy ever known to mankind, which is the work of redemption through the blood of his cross, which destroys the root of all evil: sin.

 Our religious family, which seeks to be another prolongation of the Incarnation of the Word, "to incarnate him in all that is authentically human" (Constitutions, 36), humbly desires through the works of mercy:

a. To continue revealing to men the merciful love of God for mankind, and continue to incarnate Him through all kinds of works of charity, and thereby alleviate many of the ills of the modern man. Also that by the witness of charity, many brothers may know God: "that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Mt 5:16).

b. To love God, manifesting it in the concrete love of the brethren, as this is the only possible way to love God, just as Jesus taught us, and as also affirmed by the apostle, "he who says that he loves God, but does not love his neighbor is a liar "(cf. 1 Jn 4:20).

 We thus want to follow in the footsteps of the Incarnate Word who, coming to redeem us from sin, even pitied the wounds it caused in us, given that he passed through this world healing men from their physical and spiritual miseries, with which he gave convincing evidence of his mercy and of his love for the Father.

Summarizing what should be our spirit in the practice of the "corporal" works of mercy, we recall the admonition of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta: "We are not here for the work. We are here for Jesus. Above all, we are religious. We are not social workers, teachers, nurses or doctors. We serve Jesus in the poor, and we do all this for Him. Our life does not have any other meaning. This is one thing that many do not understand. We serve Jesus twenty-four hours a day and He gives us the strength. We love Him in the poor, and the poor with Him, but the Lord is always first.”
