Pope Francis has declared as a year of mercy, this year. In reading a sermon by Saint Leo the Great, I read:
The works of mercy are innumerable. Their very variety brings this advantage to those who are true Christians, that in the matter of almsgiving not only the rich and affluent but also those of average means and the poor are able to play their part. Those who are unequal in their capacity to give can be equal in the love within their hearts.
Those with money can donate the funds to help others. Those without money can donate their time. Everyone can pray. I have no excuse not to be merciful. Neither do you.
