Corollary to the Ten Commandments: the corporal and spiritual acts of mercy

If the Ten Commandments are the Don'ts, I suppose the Dos would be the ancient list of "corporal and spiritual acts of mercy."

The spiritual acts of mercy are: reproving, instructing, evangelizing, comforting, enduring, forgiving, and praying for the dead
