Concepts create idols; only wonder grasps anything. - St Gregory of Nyssa

The fast is upon us.

Fasting is not dieting. Fasting is not about keeping a Christian version of kosher. Fasting is about hunger and humility (which is increased as we allow ourselves to become weak). Fasting is about allowing our heart to break. [emphasis added.]

From Father Stephen.
