    Please teach me how to fast! I want to do this but I am not sure how. I am a 58 year old woman and I have been eating one half piece of bread every four hours 3 times a day (with a banana in a.m. for potassium) twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. Is this the proper way?
    I want to do this so badly for Jesus.

    Fasting is a very individual thing and I think should be discussed with a priest or spiritual director who knows you or with your doctor.

    That being said, Our Lady has said at Medjugorje that bread and water is a good fast. How much bread? One of the visionaries reported that Our Lady said, “As much as you need.” And she said fruit as well if needed.

    In my case, I am allergic to bread, and have to watch for low blood sugar. The lay association that I belong to (www.bspenance.org) fasts for Advent and Lent as part of its rule. This would be the “Good Friday” fast of one regular meal and two smaller ones that together do not add up to a meal. This is doable for me and I know what foods to have so that I don’t mess up my blood sugar.

    Whatever you choose should not make you debilitated, drowsy, or ill (as it states in the Rule of my association). I think that is just common sense. It is good to check with your doctor too, especially if you have a medical condition.

    Fasting can be anything really. Fast from what you know is bad for you. Eat at home instead of at a restaurant (and I don’t mean take-out!). Get in the habit of denying yourself little things or delay in satisfying your desires. Wait ten minutes before getting that snack, cup of coffee, or even a drink of water. The important thing is that it has to be achievable, and you should be able to do it with a cheerful heart. If you are resenting it the whole time, can our Lord be pleased?

    Don’t forget to offer up your fasting for Our Lady’s intentions.

    I hope this helps, Rosemary. God be with you.

    As a further note to Rosemary on fasting…

    Here is a favorite quote from St. Louis-Marie de Montfort: “If but a pin is given in homage, and given with a good heart, it is enough for the Lord, who sees only the heart.”

    From Mother Theresa: “In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.”

    From this blog: “Act with love and you will never be wrong.”

    The overall message is do not worry about what you can give him. The entire universe is not enough. Whatever you can give, do it with love, love, love.

    Just a little something, that I do, for Rosemary to consider:

    I try to only eat toast or a bread product every morning–I imagine it is the breakfast of fortunate poor people. It takes no thought, but it is not exactly what I would choose. Yet it does have calories and nourishment so that I can begin my day with an offering for the Lord…

    Pelianito, thank you for your blog. I draw great comfort from it. I’m not Catholic (yet) but I believe in apparitions, locutions, etc because my mother had a vision so I know it can happen to other people.

    In 1976, my mother was dying and Jesus appeared to her at midnight on a Friday night. There was a big rugged wooden Cross behind Him which had rays of light shining onto her from the points of the Cross. He talked to her about His mercy, coming events like an Asian attack on Australia (the country where we live) and if people don’t turn back to Him how there will be a chastisement of fire.

    I think what my mother saw & what she was told sounds similar to the Divine Mercy – especially that bit where Jesus told St Faustina about a Cross which will appear in the sky and have great lights coming from the places where He was nailed (sounds very similar to the Cross which shone rays of light on my mother).

    Also, the next morning on the radio news, there was a report that astronomers had seen a strange light in the sky about midnight which was shining towards the north of Melbourne (where my mother was in hospital ) and the astronomers couldn’t find the light’s source. My mother believed that light in the sky was something to do with her vision of Jesus and His Cross which was taking place at that very time.

    Thanks to my mother’s experience, I have had a great devotion to the Divine Mercy and St Faustina ever since I first learned about it and I say the chaplet at 3pm every day.

    Also, the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared in my sister’s kitchen at a time she was going through a cancer scare. The image only disappeared at the moment my sister found out her lump was benign. My sister is also Protestant and had never previously seen or heard of the Guadalupe image before but she drew comfort from it because she received the feeling from Our Lady that things would turn out alright (and they did).

    Also, could you please pray for me? I’m 43 and on kidney dialysis, and because I’m single and live on my own, I struggle a bit to look after myself. Thanks & God bless.

    Donna thank you for your presence on the blog and for sharing the vision with us. I will pray for your health and for your hinted-at desire for full communion with the Church Christ established on earth. May our Lady intercede for you with her Son. In the name of Jesus, I pray, be healed.

    dear Pelianito,,,, thank you for posting the Novena to the Holy Spirit,,, you made it so easy to follow each day!!! I pray the The Holy Spirit fill each and everyone of our hearts with LOVE, LOVE , LOVE,,, this will facilitate us all in growing in virtues. We can desire all the Gifts, yet, without His LOVE we truly miss the fullness and fruits of the Gifts.
    God Bless

    I want to learn how to fast and pray more than I do right now. I love Our Lady and Jesus. I have taken 5 pilgrimages to Medjugorje until last year. As I had to have a total knee replacement and now have stenosis of the spine. I am 72 years old> If it is the Lord’s will to heal me I will do it again if not I will give Him each day that He gives to me.
    Blessings of Joy and Peace

    Thank you for your comment, Hope, and your commitment to our Lady’s desire for more fasting and praying. Setting up a regular prayer schedule is very pleasing to God, even though at times, we may not “feel” like praying! Our faithfulness will bear fruit even in times of dryness. There is no substitute for the rosary and Divine Mercy chaplet, but if you are already doing these there are other options as well. Pray Station Portable has an audio recording of the Liturgy of the Hours: http://psp.libsyn.com/. It’s free, but you have to subscribe.

    As for fasting, sometimes our Lord chooses the fasting for us. In your case it may be the fasting from health and comfort that your conditions give you. This is something I am sure you are already offering to God. Otherwise you can add something like the Good Friday fast on Fridays and/or Wednesdays. That is one regular meal and two smaller ones that do not add up to a meal. Or you can give something up on those days that you really enjoy, such as TV or the internet, or the telephone.

    If you are feeling called to do more, then living a rule of life for laity may be an option. There is one posted here: http://ephphathahouse.org/ruleoflife.htm. You could adapt it to suit you, but this gives you some ideas. If you have a spiritual director it would be good to ask him or your confessor before embarking on this.

    Sometimes it is best to start out gradually rather than take on too much and fail. Let the Lord lead. It is the only way it will work. If we try to do more than he is asking, we will fail. Small things with great love, as Mother Theresa said.

    Here is a snapshot of the Rule of the Brothers and Sisters of Penance and you can look at that as well. If you feel called to this more formalized way of penance, write to me and I will send you more information.

    Let us pray for each other. God bless.

    Merci et union de prières.

  21. Gretaon 11 Jul 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Some time ago you advertise a book, available through Amazon.com, about priests who were wrongly accused of abuse. I wonder if you can give me the name of the book as I would like to look into ordering it. Hope you can help me with this.

    Thank you.

  22. pelianitoon 11 Jul 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Greta I don’t think that was me. But I did find this book on Amazon. Perhaps it is the one you are thinking of. Perhaps you heard of it on http://www.holysoulshermitage.com ? Fr. George often mentions the priests who are falsely accused.

  23. Claire Wilderon 04 Aug 2012 at 12:57 pm

    Thank you for the above discussion on fasting… just what I needed!
