  1. In 2016 Pope Francis added 8th spiritual and corporal works of mercy: to care for the environment.

    As a spiritual work of mercy, care for creation “calls for a grateful contemplation of God’s world which allows us to discover in each thing a teaching which God wishes to hand on to us.” So, ‘To appreciate God’s gift of the earth.’

    And as a corporal work of mercy, he said, it “requires simple daily gestures which break with the logic of violence, exploitation and selfishness and makes itself felt in every action that seeks to build a better world.” So, ‘To protect the environment.’
