their fasting and prayer

May 15, 2019 11:28 am

“‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ Then, completing their fasting and prayer, they laid hands on them and sent them off.” (ACTS 13: 2-13)

These two—“fasting and prayer”—are happy when together. Fasting helps us to be more dependent on Our Lord, being more grateful for all we receive, and prayer directs everything to Him.

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
