To feed the hungry
To give drink to the thirsty.
To clothe the naked
To visit and ransom the captives (those in prison)
To shelter the homeless
To visit the sick
To bury the dead


To admonish the sinners
To instruct the ignorant
To counsel the doubtful
To comfort the sorrowful
To bear wrongs patiently
To forgive all injuries
To pray for the living & the dead
