Eamon Duffy on Fasting. I hardly ever fasted. But after spending two weeks without food and little water, I was perfectly reconciled to whatever God should intend for me. After seeing such a spiritual benefit, I think I will fast once I get better.
I never follow the injunction to do a penitential act on a Friday. Time to change.
