  • Fasting opens up our hearts to conversion
  • Fasting gives weight to our prayer intentions
  • Fasting strengthens us in resisting temptations
  • Fasting and prayer promote peace in our hearts and peace with one another
  • Fasting teaches us the difference between “wanting” and “needing”
  • Fasting reminds us of the plight of the poor and for many in the world who are perpetually hungry
  • Fasting and prayer can free us from addictive behavior
  • “Fasting will lead us to a new freedom of heart and mind.” — Fr. Slavko Barbaric O.F.M
  • Fasting invites the Holy Spirit in to heal our hearts, our relationship with God and our relationship with others

With all fasting, we strongly recommend consulting your physician— as everyone’s physical health is unique.

Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI gives some guiding words about fasting in his 2009 Lenten message. Read it here.

“The Sacred Scriptures and the entire Christian tradition teach that fasting is a great help to avoid sin and all that leads to it.

“Through fasting and praying, we allow Him to come and satisfy the deepest hunger that we experience in the depths of our being: the hunger and thirst for God.”
