Why We Fast


"We fast and offer our bodies as a sacrifice; the outward form of this is bearing fatigue, but its essence is the intentional acceptance of death, that we may be counted fit to be mystically united in the flesh and blood of Christ. It is then that we become, in Christ's sacrifice, a pure sacrifice, capable of interceding and redeeming."

- Matthew the Poor in The Communion of Love, p. 122
