Almsgiving: Day 3

“Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Luke 12:33-34)

Intentions: That all Christians may detach themselves from worldly possessions, fame and pleasures, so as to be able to serve Christ fully by surrendering them to Him; pray for the religious, that they may be faithful to their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

Action: Examine your attachments to worldly possessions (be it money or jobs), fame (human approval) and pleasures. Surrender them to Christ, that you may be prudently ready for a Divine calling.
