WE have come to the peak of our Lenten reflection. Just as Faith without good work is dead fasting without almsgiving is starvation. Our Lenten fast is incomplete without almsgiving. Almsgiving perfects our Lenten observance. We started this Lenten reflection with the significance of prayer.
Last week we reflected on the essence of fasting and today we are going to reflect on the importance of almsgiving, which is the fruit of prayer and fasting.
