Tuesday, First Wk Lent: "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.

“This is how you are to pray: Our Father who art in heaven ...

-- Mt 6:7-15

The New Law practices the acts of religion: almsgiving, prayer and fasting, directing them to the "Father who sees in secret," in contrast with the desire to "be seen by men." Its prayer is the Our Father.
-- CCC 1969
