Acts of Mercy: Matthew 25: 35-36: "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me." To these six Acts of Mercy, Christian tradition has added a seventh- to bury the dead and comfort those who mourn.

Christ's Invitation: Matthew 11:28 : "Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

Gifts of the Spirit: Isaiah 11:13: "And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might and the Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord"
