Fasting for Others

“Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve
and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Matt 20:28

By His example, Jesus taught us that we can serve others. By His death on the cross, He taught us that we can also sacrifice for others.

This is one of the most beautiful aspects of fasting. Fasting for the intentions of others makes us less self-centered. Fasting for others gives powerful meaning to our sacrifice.

“But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, ‘Why couldn’t we drive it (demon) out?’ He replied, ‘This kind can come out only by prayer and fasting.’” Mark 9:27-29

Not only does fasting make us less self-centered, fasting together with prayer gives powerful weight to our prayer intentions. Fasting helps us to focus on others and not ourselves.

As we continue our Lenten journey today, let us pray and fast for all the community intentions, for all those who are suffering and for all those being persecuted for their faith.

Holy Mary, pray for us! Holy Spirit, teach us to pray!
