Lent #2: Much Ado About Prayer and Fasting

Below are three 3-minute audio clips of Father Rich Simon talking about prayer and fasting on Go Ask Your Father on Relevant Radio.

—————————————

PRAYER AND FASTING

“Prayer… is primarily to allow God to do His will.”

—————————————

WHY PENANCE AND FASTING?

“Fasting is not about trying to convince God that we’re really miserable and you should be nicer… It is an exercise in freedom. It is our spiritual weapon because the devil wants to take our freedom.”

—————————————

A CALL TO RETURN TO FASTING

“…we will not make progress against… the devaluation of human life in every aspect… until we restore Friday abstinence from meat, the Advent fast, and the Lenten fast.”
