Today, I will speak to all my children on that corporal work of Mercy which tells you to give drink to the thirsty.
My little ones all of the corporal works of Mercy tend toward the care of your mortal body, according to Godís Perfect Will. Therefore, I say again that before you can fulfill a corporal act of Mercy itís origin must come from the heart and soul animated by the grace of the Holy Spirit.
Little children, when you in loving charity give to the poor so that they might eat you also procure for them drink which also nourishes and sustains the body. When you offer hospitality in your home, community meeting place or place of work, you are to refresh your neighbor and quench his physical thirst. All of the corporal works or acts of Mercy are an aid to fulfilling the Spiritual Works of Mercy, which are of much greater merit for all.
Remember, too, to make sacrifices in your daily life. In many parts of the world there is scant water for millions of my children. Yet, if God in His Wisdom has blessed you with an abundance of water, do not waste this gift. Be prudent in its use to not only quench your thirst. Water prepares the food grown where sufficient rainfall permits the growth of crops. Water bathes, cleanses, soothes, cools. You must, then, in Mercy for all who have little or none of this precious gift, contain your use to what you truly need, wasting not one drop upon yourself. Godís Infinite Merits will then supply to those who lack what He Wills to give them, blessing your sacrifice.
Therefore, little children, wisely use what God has given to you, and pray and sacrifice daily for those less fortunate. God shall bless you and them, both now and in Eternity.
