The Spirituality of Fasting, book by H. H. Pope Shenouda III

49- Drills in certain virtues


It is possible to benefit by profound spiritual feelings that you may experiences while fasting. This may allow a person to gain any virtue that his heart longs for. This may include tolerance, forbearance, calmness, meekness, being cautious, respect for others, generosity, honesty in work, righteousness, discipline, etc.

If you came out of every fast well versed in one virtue, it would be of great spiritual gain for you.
