FASTING

 

While refraining from food, one must also refrain from the passions. St. Macarius

The Holy Church cries out: fasting is not avoiding food, but putting away all evil, controlling the tongue from idle-talking and gossip, forbearing from anger, and abstaining from lust, falsehood, and flattery. Whoever fasts in this way, his fast is pleasing to God. St. Anthony

One must absolutely keep the fasts, on Wednesdays and Fridays, and all Great Lent. Absolutely fast. St. Anthony

Refrain from food as much as possible and try to eat light and familiar foods in moderation. St. Leo

The essence and power of abstinence is not in refraining from food, but in expelling from the heart every remembrance of evil and other such things. That is true fasting, and what above all else the Lord demands from us. St. Leo

Fasting is praiseworthy and necessary in its time and place: it is better to keep to a moderate use of food and drink, avoiding satiety, indicated by a slight heaviness, and on the other hand, avoiding excessive and inappropriate abstinence. Moderation, the middle path, makes a person more capable of spiritual activity. St. Ambrose
