Our Catholic traditions lead us to focus on acts of prayer, fasting, and charity during Lent. We prepare our hearts during the 40 days of Lent as Jesus prepared during his 40 days in the desert, getting ready for the challenging Christian mission of living the Good News in the world.

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... when you pray... when you fast... And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.” -- Matthew 6:1-2, 5, 16, 18
