The Church Fathers on Fasting


John Sanidopoulos, on his blog MYSTAGOGY, has assembled an impressive list of resources on fasting for us to use during Great Lent. Many of these are sermons and reflections by the Church Fathers on the topic of the Fast.

Fasting is difficult. These resources can help! View them here.

You can earn credit for reading some of these resources. You can earn 1 credit for reading 4 of the selections and answering the questions below:
  • What is the meaning of the Fast in each of the selections?
  • What new thing about fasting did you learn from each selection?
  • What encouragement does each selection give towards observing the Fast, and not giving up?
Send your answers, along with a list of the items you read, to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com for credit.
