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

8- Fasting is a gift

 

When we realise the benefits of fasting, we find that it is a blessing from God.

Yes, fasting is not merely a commandment from God but a godly gift, a grace and a blessing. God the creator of our body and soul knows of our need to fast for its benefit for our spiritual life, development and our eternity. He granted us the knowledge and manner of fasting. As a kind Father and a wise Teacher, He has recommended fasting for us.
