With a simple act of mercy, this man keeps the spirit of the Year of Mercy alive.

After seeing a boy lying in the cold, clothed in nothing but a bathing suit, this man stops and gives him his shirt, some money, and even his shorts. The kid must have been freezing because he was all too fast to get out of that wet bathing suit.

We are not sure the circumstances that lead to this poor child spending a night on the streets but he is most certainly in our prayers.
