From the Lenten Triodion:
Thursday of The Second Week

If we set our hands to doing good,the effort of Lent will be a time of repentance for us, a means to eternal life,for nothing quite saves the soul as much as giving to those in need. Alms, inspired by fasting, deliver man from death. Let us embrace this, for it has no equal; it is sufficient to save our souls! (Matins Apostika)
