Why do you look so sad? 1st girl – [Sad,] On my way, I saw many poor and sick on the street and they were sad. 2nd boy – Too bad. God help them. 1st girl – But how? 2nd girl – God lives in us and uses us to do all the good deeds in the world. 1st girl – God is the source of all good? 1st boy – Yes. He speaks to our conscience to do good when we come across those in need. 1st girl – How do we do good? 2nd girl – We were taught the last time in class that we can do good by practicing corporal and spiritual works of mercy. 1st girl – What are they? 2nd boy – Corporal works of mercy are – feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty and clothes to the naked. 1st boy – It is also – visiting the imprisoned and the sick, and giving shelter to the homeless and burying the dead. 2nd girl – The spiritual works of mercy are admonishing the sinner, instructing the ignorant, counselling the doubtful and comforting the sorrowful. 2nd boy – It also involves bearing wrongs patiently, forgiving all injuries and praying for the living and the dead. 1st girl – But if we do all these everyone in the world will be happy and live in peace. 2nd girl – Yes. So cheer up and let go do what we can for those we see in need of our help. 1st boy – Just as we were taught to do. 1st sad girl cheers up and they sing as they mime their songs with other children acting as those in need.
