Did I Do Any of These Things Today?

It seems like a good end-of-day question. The sort that directs the mind and works to renew the soul.

Did I instruct?

Did I advise?

Did I console?

Did I comfort?

Did I forgive?

Did I bear wrong patiently?

Did I feed the hungry?

Did I shelter the homeless?

Did I cloth the naked?

Did I visit the sick and imprisoned?

Did I bury the dead?

Did I even think of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy? Do I even know them? Have I thought of them since confirmation? Making the habit of such a review could work to make each day one that gets us closer to Heaven.
