The Spiritual Works of Mercy

Part 7: Forgive Offenses

It's a deed of mercy. And it's tough. Maybe that's why we saved "Forgive Offenses" for last.

Part 6: Be Patient With Those in Error

Part 5: Console the Sorrowful

There are as many ways to comfort the sorrowful as there are people.

Part 4: Counsel Those in Doubt
