(1966 USCCB Pastoral Statement on Penance and Abstinence, no. 12 and no. 18)
"If you have fasted two or three days, do not think yourself better than others who do not fast. You fast and are angry; another eats and wears a smiling face."
Pray that fasting this Lenten season will help bring you closer to God.
