The Honor 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 honor of fasting consists not in abstinence from food, but in withdrawing from sinful practices. He who limits his fasting only to an abstinence from meats is one who disparages it."
-- Saint John Chrysostom
"كرامة الصوم ليست في الإمتناع عن الطعام ولكن في الإبتعاد عن الممارسات الخاطئة. الذي يحصر صومه في مجرد الإمتناع عن الأطعمة ينتقص من قدر الصوم."
القديس يوحنا فم الذهب
Pray for me as I pray for you all.
