One Word at a Time

During this Jubilee of Mercy, One Word at a Time has been created and produced exclusively for Archdiocese of Chicago parishioners, parishes, schools and ministries. Written by Fr. Louis Cameli and produced by Loyola Press, One Word at a Time provides a key word related to the Year, along with reflections on how to put that word into practice in our everyday lives. There will be One Word at a Time for each week of the Jubilee Year and they can be used for inclusion in your parish bulletins, as well as your parish or school website. The words serve as the spark for a discussion of faith at home, at parish meetings, in the classroom, or as a personal reflection.

For the next fourteen weeks, the One Word at a Time will begin by identifying the seven corporal works of mercy followed by the seven spiritual works of mercy. Again, these works of mercy that have a corporal or physical dimension as well as a spiritual one come to us from the Bible (especially Matthew 25:31-46) and our spiritual tradition. They are proven ways to share God's mercy with others.

In our efforts to engage more people in the Jubilee of Mercy, we ask all those who are inspired to tell us about it on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #MercyWords!
