Is it possible to be a modern, young, social person while still maintaining an authentic, faith-filled, spiritual life?

When Jesus asked us to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, and visit the imprisoned, he didn't mean it literally, right? Kerry Weber, a modern, young single woman in New York City sets out to see if she can practice the Corporal Works of Mercy in an authentic, personal meaningful manner while maintaining a full, robust, regular life.

Weber, a lay Catholic, explores the Works of Mercy in the real world, with a gut-level honesty and transparency that people of urban, country and suburban locale alike can relate to. Mercy in the City is for anyone who is struggling to live in a meaningful, merciful way amid the pressures of "real life."

For those who feel they are already overscheduled and too busy, for those who assume that they are not "religious enough" to practice the Works of Mercy, for those who worry that they are alone in their efforts to live an authentic life, Mercy in the City proves that by living as people for others, we learn to connect as people of faith.
