Accustomed to fast.

“The disciples of John and of the Pharisees were accustomed to fast.” (MK 2: 18)

We have spiritual practices like fasting, meditation, and prayers (like litanies), as well as combinations such as meditation+prayer (like Rosary) and adoration, reflections on God’s Word, and many others, like songs, stations of the cross, etc.  These are our spiritual rituals. They are important. We also have our own marriage rituals to protect our relationship. They are also important because we go to heaven as spouses. Like spiritual rituals, we can have many of them; the only important thing is to practice them. Sometimes they could change from walking long walks to time with a hot tea at the fireplace, but the essence is important—stay together, stay close, communicate your love, and be love. 

“The word of God is living and effective, able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
