From the book, Intimate Graces, insight into how you can apply the corporal works of mercy to your marriage:
Feed the hungry: Respond to your spouse’s deepest longings.
Give drink to the thirsty: Refresh your love for one another.
Clothe the naked: Protect each other in vulnerable moments.
Shelter the homeless: Be a safe haven for one another
Visit the sick: Be a healing presence, bring the healing presence of Jesus to one another
Ransom the captive: Help free yourself or your spouse from the slavery of sin
Bury the dead: Respond to your spouse’s deepest sorrows or regrets
Intimate Graces: How Practicing the Works of Mercy Brings Out the Best in Marriage was written by Deacon Dominick Pastore and his wife, Teresa Tomeo (Pastore)
