How can we think of almsgiving in new ways during this penitential season?

How can almsgiving bring about a change of heart, the conversion called for during Lent?

Almsgiving calls for a great examination.

When we give alms, we give not only money but our time and talents. We sacrifice our own comfort and desires for the good of others.
