Quinquagesima



I share with you all the best answers I have ever heard to the question "why fast?" Thank you to Father Deacon Michael Hyatt, who listed these four in a lecture on fasting:

1. To foster dependence on God
2. To share in the Divine Likeness.
3. To break the strongholds of sins.
4. To seek God's help in overcoming our adversaries.

For All the Saints: St. Andrew!

Celebrating the First-Called!
