There are numerous studies and documentaries recently about the healing Power of Extended periods of fasting to illness and disease!
Fasting, penance and Small sacrifices also help us from getting possessive about things!
We need to exercise Strength of Will and Detachment over pride and possessions!
When we immolate ourselves through self-giving and fasting we strengthen our wills and we distance ourselves from the desire to have luxuries and worldly possessions.
Through penance and fasting We “let go” as we give up through small sacrifices our attachment to those things that keep us fixated on things of this life so we can focus on the supernatural and the divine! The soul is “lifted” and we become closer to God!
Fasting penance, and small sacrifices are the greatest sign of Love! They are a deliberate demonstration of our Love for God and for others around us over our own personal desires!
Humility, Love and True strength of Will are some of the greatest virtues that come from a regular practice of fasting, penance, and small sacrifices!
Structured and proper fasting may even help you lose weight! At least the weight of the world!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16.
