# 53 - Pray with Charity
“Charity” has two popular meanings. Sometimes it can mean to give financial support to a volunteer organization or persons in need. At other times it can mean to treat people with love and understanding, especially those with whom we might find cause to be critical. To pray with charity requires a) learning to love and genuinely praying beyond our judgments, and b) to contributing to their relief and aid. Thus the charity prayer is a prayer of a changed heart and an open wallet.
