Lent is a time of preparation. Catholics (and other Christian denominations) use this season for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving as we look forward to the celebration of Easter, Christ’s resurrection.
You may think of almsgiving as just giving the sacrifice of money. But consider it as an opportunity to give of yourself. Give your time, or share your talents, in the spirit of Christ’s love.
I pray that you have a fruitful Lent.
