Daily Mass: Pray, fast and give alms…in secret. Catholic Inspiration

Jesus teaches that our actions are accountable to God and not to be done for our own gratification.  Prayer, fasting and almsgiving are powerful ways to live our faith, provided that they are done for God’s glory and not our own.
