Singing the Goodness of the Lord

Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.  Psalm 89

Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.  Do we find ourselves humming on days of fasting or grumbling?    When we fully embrace the fasting routine, especially if we fast with healthy non-GMO fasting breads from LTF, we may be surprised that we are more energetic and more positive.

It’s not easy to embrace the practice of fasting in our materialistic secular world.  But when we do, we will find so many physical and spiritual benefits that many of us will actually look forward to fasting days and may even add more than two fasting days to our fasting routine.

If you’re not so positive and have a difficult time fasting, join the club!  Many of us struggle and grumble on days of fasting.  And that’s okay too.  Over time, it may get a bit easier to fast and to embrace fasting.

One aspect of fasting that helps many people is to think of the poor and perpetually hungry and those who do not have a choice to fast.

Have you ever seen this photo?  The story behind it is beautiful. The photographer, in an attempt to get a photo of a starving African boy, offered him a lollipop. How the child responded moved the photographer to tears.  The boy offered to give one of the lollipops back to the photographer.  The child had no food and wanted to give half of his treat to the photographer.

In some ways, this innocent boy was like the poor widow, who gave her last pennies.

When we fast, let’s always try to remember the poor and perpetually hungry.

Tomorrow, let’s pray and fast for all those who are spiritually and physically starving, for the community intentions and for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
