“Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” – Matthew 5:23-24
Today, Fr. Mark-Mary offers us a very practical Lenten challenge to consider how to become an instrument of reconciliation to accompany your offering of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
