Tuesday of the First Week of Lent
Gospel Reading: Mt 6” 7-15
 
“In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”( Mt 6: 7-8)
 
Set aside time today to slowly pray the Our Father, focusing special attention on the meaning of the words.
