rule II: abstinence and fasting


i will create regular days of silence and fasting for myself and molly. with the realization that it is about god’s doing and my being there, on these days of silence i will:

  • abstain from food
  • focus on the gospels if any reading is done
  • abstain from talking
  • abstain from trying to figure it all out
  • focus on communion
  • focus on others

“keep your love for food in check and you will find it easier to control all inclinations of the flesh.
thomas a kempis, the imitation of christ
