Instruction at the beginning of a fasting season. People want to know the fasting rules. The most important rule is that we must understand why we should fast, and fast with purpose. We talk about this purpose in detail, with a few examples from Scripture (the woman with an issue of blood and the Shunamite woman whose son Elisha raised) and St Zosimas, in the Life of St. Mary of Egypt.
