These 40 Days - Fasting

Technology, particularly social media, has ushered in a culture of "SELF". We post our opinions, our photos (selfie!), our whereabouts, even what we eat, the shows we've seen, how we feel. These 40 days of Lent also tells us to focus on the SELF, albeit on a different perspective. These 40 days of Lent, we are called to prepare the SELF into becoming more and more committed to the faith. These 40 days of Lent, Jesus reminds us of three disciplines: alms-giving (being SELF-less), praying (SELF-denial), and fasting (SELF-restraint). These 40 days of Lent, let us journey together as we prepare the SELF for Easter—a time of restoration, a time when we renew our baptismal vows and re-commit ourselves to our Lord Jesus Christ.


For this week, let us focus on fasting, fasting with a purpose. You may download the image, print it, and share with your family, your friends, or your prayer group members. If you want, you may do the excercise on your own, and then share your reflection with your family or prayer group. After sharing, you may pray for one another, asking the Lord to help you in your commitment to change.
