Okay brothers and sisters in Christ.
I have a question. I am supposed to partake in Holy Communion this week.
It is now a time of non-fasting but I feel like I want to fast for this week. I'm not sure if this is because the idea popped in my head and I feel like I want to do the utmost devotion or because its God telling me to fast.
My priest gave me a penance which was prostrations and I told him I feel like I should fast and he said if you can fast then do it.
I live on campus where fasting is very difficult. There is a convenient store right next to my house with everything I could want. I have Cheez-Its in my dorm that are staring me down and not to mention the nutella!
I feel like I want to fast becuase its been a while since I have partaken in Holy Communion but at the same time I am also not sure if I should or it makes sense to. I guess my question is how do I know if I should fast this week?
