    •#Mercy In Motion Campaign for Third Sunday of Lent: Visit the Sick: ‘There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years. . . She said, ‘If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured.’ Immediately her flow of blood dried up. She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction’ (Mk. 5:25, 28-29). This week, answer Christ’s call to Visit the Sick by 1) Meditating on the story of the Woman with a Hemorrhage; 2) Fasting from sweets, desserts, and/or junk food; 3) Calling or sending a card to someone in a nursing home.
