Saturday after Ash Wednesday
Today we honor another Lenten saint, St. Frances of Rome, who gave most of her great wealth to the poor.
When we give alms, we can give money, our time, and/or our talents. We sacrifice our comfort for the sake of others. How have you viewed almsgiving during this penitential season? Has giving of your time, talent, or treasure brought about a change of heart?
The ease with which we are able to give alms may depend largely on how much we earn. For those out of work, the challenge is greater still. Today, we pray for those in our life who may be between jobs or looking for work.
Daylight Savings Time begins tomorrow. Remember to set your clocks forward an hour tonight and start the week and the season off right by getting to Mass on time tomorrow.
