Works of charity

“In works of charity one offers fine flour, and when he gives alms he presents his sacrifice of praise. To refrain from evil pleases the LORD, and to avoid injustice is an atonement.” (SIR 35: 3-5)

Every day we have a lot of occasions to practice “works of charity.” A very special time comes with Lent, when we can give alms, fast and pray. All of these Lenten practices are “works of charity.” Our rituals are perfect ways to do “works of charity” because we protect our relationship; we respect God, who called us to be spouses, and we “give alms” because rituals are very often a sacrifice of our time.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
