FASTING, PRAYERS AND GOOD WORKS

But as the salvation of our souls is not gained solely by fasting, let us fill up what is wanting in our fasting with almsgiving to the poor. Let us give to virtue what we take from pleasure. Let the abstinence of the man who fasts be the dinner of the poor man.

Let us have thought for the protection of the widow, for the welfare of the orphans, for the comforting of those who mourn, for the peace of those who live in discord. 

Let the stranger be given shelter. Let the oppressed be aided, the naked be clothed, the sick cherished; so that whosoever has offered from his own works of justice a sacrifice of righteousness to God, the Author of all good things, may merit to receive from the selfsame the reward of a heavenly kingdom.  

St. Leo the Great
