As shared last week, NCR launched an Instagram account, and during Lent, the account is largely focusing on bringing to life the corporal works of mercy. In this second week, we're looking at feed the hungry, with a list of stories below that highlight this work.
As you explore the stories, do you find yourself reflecting on hunger or recall having participated in activities that feed the hungry? Share your experience with us with an Instagram comment or by email.
We're highlighting the works of mercy not in a spirit of self-promotion, but to celebrate our community: the NCR family, the Catholic community and the global community. May we all have a deeper Lenten experience suffused with meaning, community and mercy.
