Fasting is a positive good, a washing rain leaving the air clear, therefore, the mind crisp, the haze in the mind gone with perception, no different than looking to a sky without clouds. As high as the sky is, fasting from the heart is as deep, in that it brings prayer deeper still because it comes forth more deeply from the heart.

"Jason I have often raised my hand in the silence of the night and in my solitary cell, blessing you all and presenting you to Jesus and to our father, St. Francis of Assisi." "In all the events of life, you must recognize the Divine will. Adore and bless it, especially in the things which are the hardest for you."
