Spiritual Companions on Your Lenten Journey 

—Archbishop Fulton Sheen

"Never forget that there are only two philosophies to rule your life: the one of the cross, which starts with the fast and ends with the feast. The other of Satan, which starts with the feast and ends with the headache.”

 - Flannery O’Connor

"I do not know you, God, because I am in the way. Please help me to push myself aside.”

St. John Chyrsostom

"Fasting of the body is food for the soul.” 

“Let the mouth fast from foul words and unjust criticism , for what good is it if we abstain from birds and fishes but bite and devour our brothers.”

St. Catherine of Siena

“Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring.”

--St. Pope John Paul II

"Today, especially in affluent societies, St. Augustine’s warning is more timely than ever: ‘Enter again into yourself.’                         Yes, we must enter again into ourselves, if we want to find ourselves. Not only our spiritual life is at stake, but indeed, our personal, family, and social equilibrium itself. One of the meanings of penitential fasting is to help us recover an interior life. Moderation, recollection, and prayer go hand in hand.” —
