Pope Francis: Fasting frees us from attachment to things and from the worldliness that numbs the heart

It is time 'to stop, to focus on what is essential, to fast from the unnecessary things' Fasting from food or other things during Lent is a chance for Catholics to reorient their material attachments, Pope Francis said on Ash Wednesday, as he urged people to slow down and turn to Christ during the penitential season.

The sabbath was made for man

The disciples being hungry, only ate simple food, not for pleasure, but on account of the necessity of nature. The Pharisees however, accused the disciples of doing wrong. But our Lord brings forward David, to whom it once happened to eat though it was forbidden by the law, when he touched the Priest’s food, that […]

The Question about Fasting

Observe the pharisees’ perseverance in malice: as soon as they have received the first answer from Christ, they proceed from one thing to another, with the intent to show that the holy disciples, and Jesus Himself with them, cared very little for the law. Hence it follows, “Why do the disciples of John fast, but […]

Parable of the Rich Fool

As these two brothers were contending concerning the division of their paternal inheritance, it follows that one meant to defraud the other; but our Lord teaches us that we ought not to be set on earthly things, and rebukes the one that called Him to the division of inheritance; as it follows, “And he said […]

Prayer and fasting
