|Love is helping the poor and blessing our greatest enemy because they are our brothers, and that is the only way to please God.|
O God who purifies thy Church by the yearly observance of Lent; grant, that what thy children endeavour to obtain of thee by abstinence, they may put in execution by good works. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Liturgical Year by Dom Prosper Guéranger O.S.B. Volume 5 Lent, page 139.
