Lent is a season of reflection and spiritual growth.
It is a time of Prayer. It is a time to Fast. It is a time to reach out in Charity.

Giving Up (Sacrifice) or Taking On (Contribution) or both, contemplate on the following Bible verse for this week  Will it be a secret between you and God?
“And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites…But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:16-18)e
