I have medical reasons why I cannot fast, what should I do?

First, if you have any medical conditions, you should talk to your doctor about fasting before making any changes to your routine. (Please Note: Live the Fast, LLC is not qualified to make medical or health related decisions or assertions. Please consult your physician if you have any questions about your own ability to complete a bread and water fast.)

For those who cannot fast on bread and water let’s look at the fruit of fasting. The practice and discipline teaches us to move away from things of the world and to draw closer to God through conversion. Fasting creates room in our hearts and our lives for God.

If you cannot fast on bread and water, we invite you to spend time in Eucharistic Adoration. In this way, you will fast from the world, fast from your schedule and be in silence and prayer with the Lord. Just as in a bread and water fast, time spent in Adoration purifies us and creates room in our hearts and our lives for God.

“Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth.” – Blessed Mother Teresa

 

“Withdraw yourself from people and spend at least a quarter of an hour, or a half-hour, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Taste and see how sweet is the Lord, and you will learn from your own experience how many graces this will bring you.” -St. Alphonsus Ligouri
