The Path of Fasting
Blessing in the name of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Please let me share with you what I have read today:
The path of fasting leads to the path of purity. Fasting is the cutting off of lust and evil thoughts, the purity of prayer, the illumination of the soul, the guarding of the mind, the deliverance from hardness of heart, the door to contrition.
Saint John of the Ladder
"طريق الصوم يؤدي لطريق النقاوة. الصوم هو بتر الشهوة والأفكار الشريرة، وهو نقاوة الصلاة، واستنارة النفس، وضبط العقل، والتخلص من قساوة القلب، وهو الباب للندم."
القديس يوحنا الدرجي (السلمي)
Pray for me as I pray for you all.
