Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy Become a Messenger of Peace: 


Scouts should perform an act of mercy. The Corporal Works of Mercy are the kind of acts by which we help our neighbors with their material and physical needs. These acts are: Feed the hungry; Shelter the homeless; Clothe the naked; Visit the sick and imprisoned; Bury the dead, and Give alms to the poor.
