In The State of Mortal Sin, We Gain No Merits

Our prayers, fasting, and almsgiving during Lent do no profit for our souls if we are in the state of mortal sin. We can gain merit and atone for sin only if we are in the state of grace. Go to Confession often this Lent. Giving up dessert is no use if you continue to live in sin. Fasting, even the rigorous fasting that I encourage for Lent, is not useful if we continue to live in sin and fail to practice prayer and almsgiving.

Make real and lasting spiritual progress this Lent. Here are some resources for you to conquer lust, pride, and technology addictions. See: Make Real Progress This Lent.
