As we receive the mercy of Christ, we share that mercy with each other and with our community. Our mercy care goes out in the name of Christ. We love and care for our vulnerable neighbors, the unborn, the weak, and the elderly. We seek to defend those who cannot defend themselves, affirming their lives. We recognize the worth of babies in the womb, of our elderly, and all those who are vulnerable to life-destroying decisions.

As the Catechism teaches us:  “I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that He has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.  …  He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.  All this He does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me.  For all this, it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey Him.”
