Today in the Gospel, Jesus tells us the three ways to draw closer to God: Prayer, almsgiving, and fasting. And he reminds us three times: “Your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” These words are a reminder that we are always living in the presence of God.

The #ashes remind us that worldliness is like the dust that is carried away by a slight gust of wind. Sisters and brothers, we are not in this world to chase the wind; our hearts thirst for eternity. https://t.co/MYs573VqeG

I invite everyone to make this coming 2nd March, Ash Wednesday, a Day of Fasting for Peace: let believers dedicate themselves intensively to prayer and fasting. May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the madness of war.
