Purpose of fasting

When the body is hum­bled, our thoughts become more peace­ful, too. This is the pur­pose of fast­ing. God is present in a mys­te­ri­ous way in every being, most espe­cial­ly in the heart, which is the cen­ter of life. It is impos­si­ble to unite with God when the stom­ach is full, for a full stom­ach caus­es many cares and wor­ries. All our thoughts, all our emo­tions, and all our will must be con­cen­trat­ed. When they are not, we are rest­less and lose our peace.”
Excerpt From: “Our Thoughts Deter­mine Our Lives.” Saint Her­man of Alas­ka Broth­er­hood, 2013-09-26. iBooks.
