In this week's CM Hangout, Andrea Bear shares insights on the spiritual benefits of fasting.
In our Hangout this week, Andrea Bear shares some of her own experiences with the spiritual practice of fasting. Why should we consider fasting sometimes, even when it's not Lent?
In a world that promotes instant gratification and seeking our own happiness always and at any cost, the idea of fasting can sound crazy, but this is a tradition with a long history in the Church. Andrea encourages us to consider ways that we can offer up small sacrifices, like fasting, for our own benefit and for the benefit of others.
Join us for this encouraging & inspiring CatholicMom Hangout. And be sure to add your thoughts, questions & ideas in the comments!
