    February 28, 2017 Tuesday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 Sir 35:1-12To keep the law is a great oblation,and he who observes the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.In works of charity one offers fine flour,and when he gives alms he presents his sacrifice of praise.To refrain from evil pleases the LORD,and to avoid injustice is an atonement.Appear not before the LORD empty-handed,for all that you offer is in fulfillment of the precepts.The just one's offering enriches the altarand rises as a sweet odor before the Most High.The just one's sacrifice is most pleasing,nor will it ever...
