“The 2016Mercy Challenge” is a direct response to Pope Francis’ proclamation of 2016 as The Year of Mercy. What it entails is simply performing 7 familiar and simple Acts of Mercy including Feeding The Hungry, Giving Drink to the Thirsty, Clothing The Naked, Welcoming The Stranger, Healing The Sick, Visiting The Prisoner, & Burying (Honoring) the Dead.
When you sign up to do the challenge, you can get 7 bracelets to wear, each one corresponding to one the acts of mercy. You pick one of the bracelets to wear, and when you perform the corresponding act of mercy, you give it to someone else so they too can perform that act of mercy.
Then you begin to wear the next bracelet until you perform that act of mercy, again giving it away, and so on, until you have completed all 7 acts, and given away all 7 bracelets. In this way, the hope is that acts of mercy can go “viral”, and spread mercy to people and a culture so in need of it.
