It has been discover by fasting, we are able to concentrate on spiritual disciplines we wish to strengthen. Fasting is not about denial, but invitation, greetings to a new a new way of seeing things or thinking.
It should not be painful, but pleasurable, a feeling of empowerment that you wish to revisit several times a year.
