The Blessings of Fasting
Our church, which was built on the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ, recognizes the daily struggle between the flesh and the spirit. To protect us we must be prepared before the war not after the battle have started. Pope Kyrillos, showed us that fasting is the fortress separating us from the lust and temptations of the world, and keeping us strong in these struggles. He presented many references from Old and the New Testaments to help us in our quest for salvation.
