For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Matthew 25:35
We may take notice, that the wicked at the Day of Judgment, are said to be condemned for having omitted to perform good works. --- St. Augustine, in his 33d sermon, brings a beautiful reason why the kingdom of heaven is bestowed solely upon the works of mercy, and eternal damnation for the neglect of them … Because, however just a man may be, still he has many failings to atone for, on account of which the kingdom of heaven might be justly denied him: but because he has shown mercy to his neighbors, he deserves in like manner to have mercy shown him. But the wicked, not having shown mercy to their neighbors, nor redeemed their sins by alms giving, or the like, are thus delivered up to eternal damnation. --- Jesus Christ only mentions one species of good works, though others may be equally meritorious; for the means of salvation are not precisely the same for all the saints; some are saved by poverty, others by solitude, and each by that virtue which he shall have practiced in the greatest degree of perfection. (Excerpt from Haydock’s Catholic Bible Commentary)
