The Spirituality of Fasting
Rediscovering a Christian Practice, by Charles M. Murphy. Fasting is a spiritual tradition that has been lost. When you hear the word fasting, do you automatically think of hunger? I did, but fasting is so much more than not eating food. Fasting helps heal your relationship with God, with yourself, and with each other. The Spirituality of Fasting speaks of the religious discipline of fasting, its theory and practice. You will learn about its roots in Scripture and Tradition and how it transforms the body, mind, and spirit. You will discover how skipping just one meal, and uniting it with prayer and almsgiving, leads to a deeper union with God. Fasting does cause hunger, but it is a good hunger … a hunger for God. And it is only God who ultimately satisfies the hunger in your soul.
