Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

Today’s gospel is from the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus is calling his listeners then and now to an interior piety unlike that of those he calls hypocrites. He instructs his disciples to pray, fast, and give alms, not for show or to impress others, but in a way that only the Father sees.

The Lenten practices are to create in me a clean heart, rid me of my selfish ways, and bring me closer to you. This discipline must not be limited to six weeks but carry on throughout the year.
