We have had a very positive response to the graphic for the 8th Work of Mercy and so have updated it to use the title of the actual message of Pope Francis ‘Show Mercy to our Common Home’/ 'Usemos misericordia con nuestra casa común'
The 8th Spiritual Work of Mercy -
'As a spiritual work of mercy, care for our common home calls for " a grateful contemplation of God's world" ...
The 8th Corporal Work of Mercy -
'care for our common home requires "simple daily gestures which break with the logic of violence, exploitation and selfishness"...
- Pope Francis
While the jpeg is still available for those who might wish to use it, we are also making available here a full-colour digital file of the poster version of the image.
