Lenten Almsgiving Collections

“There is no more profitable practice as a companion to holy and spiritual fasting than that of almsgiving. This embraces under the single name of mercy many excellent works of devotion, so that the good intentions of the faithful may be of equal value, even where their means are not. The love that we owe both God and man is always free from any obstacle that would prevent us from having a good intention. The angels sang: Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth. The person who shows love and compassion to those in any kind of affliction is blessed, not only with the virtue of good will, but also with the gift of peace … Those who are unequal in their capacity to give can be equal in the love within their hearts.”

— St. Leo the Great

“The term from the Latin genus and the Greek genos refers to our being of one kind. Generosity is a giving that comes from the knowledge of that intimate bond … Generosity creates the family it believes in.”

—Henri Nouwen
