Works of Mercy
Visit the Imprisoned

“I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ (…) When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” – Mt 25,36b.39f

This month we would like to engage ourselves with the corporal work of mercy “Visit the Imprisoned”. When you think of the words “Visit the Imprisoned” first of all “prison” comes to your mind. Prison chaplains often hold worship or prayer for prisoners there. Sometimes it is possible to co-shape the worship with music. You may get more information from the respective prison chaplain.

In addition to the arrest in a prison people can be trapped in many different ways: in dependency, drugs, addiction, compulsions and behaviors. We would like to invite you to sharpen your sight for situations where fellows are caught and we would like to encourage you not to let them alone in these situations.
We look forward to examples and initiatives from your cities.
