I really am having a hard time understanding how/ why you all can be discussing the matter of your "lenten sacrifices:"

No need for scriptural correction here. Everyone is well aware that God knows what's written in our hearts. This thread is merely about good old fashioned faith sharing--not about pious pretense. Acts of lenten sacrifice are personal issues, between Christ and the individual--I've never seen them performed otherwise among Catholics I know. In simply answering the question put forth in the original post, I don't believe anyone here is acting like the hypocrites mentioned in the scriptural passages you've posted.
