the days will come

“Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast. But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day.” (MK 2: 19-20)

This is a very good strategy for all kinds of situations, when we feel alone, abandoned and with no connection with God at all; we feel like “the bridegroom is taken away from” us. This is a perfect time for fasting: “they will fast on that day.”

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