St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 31

"On that day they will fast." (Mark 2:20)

Fasting is not often practised as part of a Christian's lifestyle. In Jesus' day it was common practice, but he says it is only worth doing for some real purpose, not just as an outdated gesture. Going without something good in order to rediscover something even better can become a source of peace and joy.

Lord, help us so to desire you that we may seek you with all our heart, mind, soul and body, and find in you true life and peace. Amen.
