Welcome to Trinity!

Weekly Reflection – Mercy

The practice of the Works of Mercy is a real sign of the presence of Jesus in our lives. Hence the rich tradition of the seven acts of Mercy. The beautiful painting of Caravaggio is arguably the greatest masterpiece which combines all seven Mercies in one composition.

  1. To feed the hungry
  2. To give drink to the thirsty
  3. To clothe the naked
  4. Shelter the homeless
  5. To visit the sick
  6. Visit the Imprisoned
  7. To bury the dead

Along with the above ‘Corporal” acts of mercy, we also have the Spiritual acts of Mercy.

  1. To instruct the ignorant
  2. To counsel the doubtful
  3. To admonish sinners
  4. To bear wrongs patiently
  5. To forgive offences willingly
  6. To comfort the afflicted

During our Lenten period I was humbled and inspired to see our students and teachers who put into practice this tradition through the Lenten appeal. Officially we raised $17,500 in three weeks, a significant proportion of which will go to our student nominated project, The House of Welcome, which assists refugees in great need, both materially and in terms of friendship, compassion and acceptance.

It is heartening to see that there is still so much hope and compassion for the ‘outsider’ in our society, which often seems to reject those seeking asylum, those who are fleeing from war and persecution and  those who are simply trying to protect their children from harm.

I would like to leave you with a notice I read recently outside a Church;

“ If You are more fortunate in life, build a longer table rather than a bigger fence.”
