Once again I would like to share something that I came across a number of years ago that I think is a very wonderful way of approaching the Great and Holy fast.

Let us…
fast from self-concern and feast on compassion for others.
fast from discouragement and feast on hope.
fast from lethargy and feast on enthusiasm.
fast from suspicion and feast on truth.
fast from thoughts that weaken and feast on promises that inspire.
fast from shadows of sorrow and feast on the sunlight of serenity.
fast from idle gossip and feast on purposeful silence.
fast from problems that overwhelm you and feast on prayer that sustains.
fast from criticism and feast on praise.
fast from self-pity and feast on joy.
fast from ill-temper and feast on peace.
fast from resentment and feast on contentment.
fast from jealousy and feast on love.
fast from pride and feast on humility.
fast from selfishness and feast on service.
