My First Fast Begins Today

Like I said recently, I decided to answer Pope Francis’ call to dedicate Saturday to fasting and prayer for Syria. I have just finished eating dinner and I don’t plan to eat again until Sunday. My school’s chapel had a vigil today which I attended and I will be going to the daily mass tomorrow. I am not Catholic, I am baptized in the Presbyterian Church, but Francis called out to people of all denominations and faiths and I am glad to participate. Things like this are exactly the reason why I highly admire him.

While it is my goal to go without eating tomorrow, I’m not sure if I can make it. I’ll try. However there are certain things that I know I can go a day without. See you all Sunday.
