Beginning days of Lent............

Jesus said to his disciples.......

Take care not to perform righteous deeds

In order that people may see them.

Otherwise you will have no recompense from

Your Heavenly Father.

When you give Alms

do not blow a trumpet before you

as the Hypocrites do in the synagogues and

in the streets to win the praise of others.

Amen I say to You,

they have received their reward.

But when you give Alms

Do not let your left hand know

what your Right hand is doing

so that your alms giving may be secret.

And your father who sees in secret will repay you.

When you pray, do not be like Hypocrites

who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and

on the street corners, so that others may see them.

Amen I say to You

 they have received their reward.

When You fast, do not look Gloomy like the hypocrites

they neglect their appearance

so that they may appear to others to be fasting.

Amen I say to You

they have received their reward.

but when you fast anoint your head and wash your face

so that you may not appear to be fasting

except to your Father who is hidden

and your Father who sees what is hidden will repay You.
