They say you can’t bargain with God. Maybe not. But after reading the readings today I can tell you this. When we pray, fast and give alms for the right reasons, God the Father listens a little more closely. How do I know? Jesus said so, three times. “And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” It sure doesn’t hurt to try.
