I am struggling too in fasting. I even said during the holidays, that I will quit fasting in the new year. But somehow, I cannot quit. How can I not follow the message of Our Blessed Mother? I feel too guilty, plus I really need the combination of Prayer n Fasting to battle the evil that has been trying to ruin my family. I simply cannot quit fasting. All I hoping now is for the Lord to guide me and give me strength to carry on task of battling evil. I'm the only one of the eight men in our Medugorje pilgrimage group that continues to fast on Wednesdays and Fridays. Some of the guys tried it a few times, but the novelty wore off I guess? I am not overweight or anything like that. I play ice hockey twice a week. Thank God that my hockey schedule doesn't fall on my fast days. I am grateful of the changes that happened in my life since I started fasting a year ago. My teenage son is struggling with drugs and the attitude that comes from using drugs. I certainly hope that we will win this battle someday. My only ammo is prayer and fasting, confession, the holy mass, bible reading and just trying to live the messages.
