“Fast from bitterness – feast on forgiveness.
Fast from self-concern – feast on compassion for others.
Fast from personal anxiety – feast on eternal truth.
Fast from anger – feast on patience.
Fast from words that destroy – feast on words that build up.
Fast from discontent – feast on gratitude.
Fast from discouragement – feast on hope.”
What “fast” should I engage? What are three practical ways I can employ its antidote today?
by Father Charles Arminjon
Pg 28 It may be said that it will be a thousand years before this frightening cataclysm takes place; but Christ has said that a thousand years are but an instant compared with eternity, and when the moment comes–when, from the land of the future life, we are the witnesses and actors in that supreme drama–the whole span of humanity will seem so short to us that we shall scarcely consider it to have lasted a single day.
