Collection: Mercy In Action

Here in Detroit we are all about “Unleashing the Gospel”! Pope Francis, in Joy of the Gospel, writes, “the kerygma has a clear social content: at the very heart of the Gospel is life in community and engagement with others. The content of the first proclamation has an immediate moral implication centered on charity.” What does this mean? It means that, like faith, according to St. James, evangelization without works is dead.

Pope Francis is also clear that there can be no evangelization without the spoken and explicit proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ — we could not agree more! As parish communities we have to keep two things in balance: witness and proclamation. If proclamation is not partnered with demonstrations of fraternal love for our neighbors, we appear to the world out of touch with our own message.

To remind the faithful of our need to practice this kind of evangelization — what Archbishop Vigneron calls “evangelical charity” in his pastoral letter Unleash the Gospel — the Archdiocese of Detroit is sponsoring the fifth annual Mercy in Action Day of Service on Saturday, October 17th.
