How to share the mercy
Mercy is for sharing
Drink for the thirsty
In rural Kenya, Father Lance Nadeau, M.M. is constructing two wells in nearby parishes that will provide thousands of families with dependable clean water. The impact of these wells on community health will be life-changing.
Shelter for the homeless
Father Joyalito Tajonera, M.M. runs a shelter on Taiwan so migrant workers can live safely—and share the comfort of their faith. He is also their advocate before Taiwan’s legal system when workers are exploited or abused.
Food for the hungry
In South Sudan, Father John Barth, M.M. delivers food to families caught between civil war and famine. In Nepal, Father Joseph Thaler, M.M. supports family farming to build up rural economies.
Comfort for the sick and imprisoned
Father Joseph Fedora, M.M. is pastoral minister to HIV+ inmates in one of Lima, Peru’s most notorious prisons. As an act of mercy, he arranges for food deliveries. And via computer, he offers counseling and prayer. In Brazil, Father Dennis Moorman, M.M. practices his trauma-healing therapy online since the pandemic. He now reaches patients in dozens of countries worldwide.
