Second Pillar: Fasting
Fasting. During Lent, we “give things up” not to torture ourselves, but to free ourselves! By sacrificing things we find pleasurable, we are paying attention to unhealthy attachments, and seeking healthier options.
Family sacrifice. Consider choosing a ‘family sacrifice,’ like no screen time on Fridays. This is in addition to your individual sacrifices. Keeping up with a family sacrifice will provide all family members with many hidden graces.
Offer acts of faith. If your faith life is stale or stagnant, instead of giving up something commit to praying every day instead. Our sacrifices should come from love, not a sense of guilt or obligation.
Social media. Here’s another challenge: don’t announce your sacrifices on social media. By making your sacrifices privately and without recognition, you are practicing many virtues: generosity, self-control, love, and humility.
