Why We Fast

People are often intrigued by, or some may be wary of, the fasting that takes place in the Orthodox Church when they become aware of the practice. There is much that can be said about fasting, and plenty has been said by many. But as today marks the beginning of the Great Fast (Lent), Fr. Stephen has a post that talks about why we fast. When all is said and done, this post may leave one asking oneself “Why don’t we fast”? Enjoy.
