How beautiful are pure fasts, vigils and prayers and how precious is fraternal love. The one who practices them will become the temple of the Lord, where the Holy spirit dwells.

Lord, make the light of your face shine in our hearts and souls and on this day of Lent, we shall walk in the brightness of your light.
I keep the LORD always before me;
with him at my right hand, I shall never be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad, my soul rejoices; Ps 16:8-9
By our fast may we abstain, not only from food and drink,
but from jealousy, hatred, pride and egotism.
