We often hear about the importance of Prayer and Fasting. But there is also a third dimension of Lent. In English this quality is known as Almsgiving; in Armenian it’s called Voghormoutiun: “mercifulness.” It’s the Lenten virtue that takes us into the world, to bring the light Christ to other people.
