Fasting and Feasting
Today's Daily Devotion - March 27, 2022
By Dr. George J. Ceremuga
This rather is the fasting that I wish. - Isaiah 58:6
This was the first reading at Ash Wednesday mass. We had more people at Ash Wednesday service than at our regular Sunday mass. I joked with Father Ed that we should distribute ashes every Wednesday. He got a chuckle out of that! Lent is a time of reflection focusing on prayer, fasting, and alms giving. I tend to embrace active steps to be more like Jesus Christ: humility, love, and forgiveness.
Let me share some Lenten thoughts on fasting and feasting:
Fast from grumbling and feast on gratefulness
Fast from food and feast on scripture
Fast from gossip and feast on building up others
Fast from complaining and feast on thankfulness
Fast from judging and feast on acceptance
Fast from your plan and feast on God’s plan
Fast from talking and feast on listening
And always lead with Love!
