“For the true fast is a life pure from every evil act, and that we should break bread for those who are hungry.” St. Severus of Antioch, Letter XVII to Thomas the Presbyter.
Let us look to not only curb our eating habits but to feed the hungry. Let us feed the one who hungers and thirsts for compassion, a loving smile or a warm embrace. If we are capable let us look to clothe the one whose sin has left them naked and fallen and need our hand up. If we are so capable, let us feed the hungry.
