O Prince of Peace, rule over our hearts, souls, and minds with your peace that passes all understanding. Wherever there are differences, let us rejoice in what we have in common. Amen.

I grew up fasting and abstaining during lent. Pope Francis has offered another take on fasting.


In the words of Pope Francis

“Fast from hurting words and say kind words.

Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.

Fast from anger and be filled with patience.

Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope.

Fast from worries and have trust in God.

Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.

Fast from pressures and be prayerful.

Fast from bitterness and fill your heart with joy.

Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others.

Fast from grudges and be reconciled.

Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.“

I think I will be adding this to my Lenten practices.
