      You are so welcome. Lent can be different for each person but it is a moving experience.

      You are very welcome. This time of the year is a double edged sword for me. It’s Easter which is such a beautiful holiday. However my father passed away a couple of days after Easter seventeen years ago. This year it’s not so bad because Easter is a week earlier.

    I am not a catholic but I have two girlfriends that are and I think to fast with them. It’s good for me I think and it’s a good way to support them.

      What a wonderful way to support your friends! That is so awesome and I am so thrilled that you feel that way about fasting. Many people don’t understand or misunderstand it.

    I think fasting and giving up a comfort you love can help focus us on special occasions. I know when I’ve done it, I’m constantly reminded to reflect on the sacrifices others have made that have been far more difficult. It helps us understand what Jesus gave for us.

      It does help us understand the sacrifice he made. For me it helps me find a balance in my life as well. I am able to focus more on the moment and less on the big picture which I am always focusing on.
