Resources for Spiritual Growth
Almsgiving is the act of donating money or goods to the poor or performing other acts of charity.
The foundational call of Christians to charity is a frequent theme of the Gospels. During Lent, we are asked to focus more intently on "almsgiving." As one of the three pillars of Lenten practice, almsgiving is "a witness to fraternal charity" and "a work of justice pleasing to God."
