Welcome to lent! To help you get into the right mindset, here’s a blog post by Fr. Anthony: “Why do we Fast during Lent”. He states, “Our fasting is not done primarily for the sake of bettering ourselves; that may be a byproduct, but it certainly doesn’t match what our spiritual forefathers – the ones who instructed us to fast during Lent – taught us as the primary purpose of our fasting.”
I think you’ll be inspired!
And if you are needing some help with fasting dishes, here are some simple fasting recipes a group of STSA members put together a few years ago.
