Hearing God’s Voice Through Fasting

My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
I know them, and they follow me.
(John 10:27)

How well do we listen to God’s voice? Can we even hear His voice amidst our daily activities? God speaks to us in many ways: during Adoration, through Scripture, through prayer, through other people, through the trials/tribulations of life.

God also speaks to us through fasting. When we are fasting and when we are focusing on prayer and spiritual matters, we can hear God’s voice more clearly. The regular self-denial of fasting and the hunger pangs that come with it are good experiences. When we deny ourselves, we are sacrificing and suffering. When we are accustomed to denying ourselves on fasting days, we may find that we can bear other sacrifices better.

In Scripture, Christ says “when you fast,” not “if you fast.” By fasting, we are following Jesus’ command to fast. We are hearing God’s voice.

Today let us fast and pray for all the community intentions, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis, for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and for all those who do not have the gift of faith.

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