"Another reason to fast is to listen to what is truly inside us... Because time goes more slowly while fasting and we step outside our daily routines and habits, we have time to notice those inner voices we usually miss...
"...What is my true hunger? In what ways am I satisfying myself too easily with toys and mindless pleasures? What does my desire for God really look like? These are some of the questions we may find ourselves considering when we fast, and the answer to these questions will nourish our life of prayer."
