prayer diary Friday 20 Feb 2015 (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

And Jesus said to them, ‘The wedding-guests cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. 
Matthew 9.15

Reflection
All the great spiritual teachers of all religions have recognised that restricting how much or what you eat can be of great spiritual benefit. We who call ourselves Christians should be the most zealous in this discipline, for it was mandated for us by Christ himself.
