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.

Wow, my last post from my last healthy day. Sick now for seven weeks, hideously so for three. Lost twenty pounds, got ultrasounded and CAT scanned, and still no diagnosis. At least suffering makes me holy.

Pray for me, all you saints.
