They will fast on that day

“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)

We received today a very good strategy for “the” situation when “the bridegroom is taken away from” us: when we feel abandoned and left alone or when we pray and we feel that nobody listens to us: “fast on that day.” Go into your loneliness and abandonment with fasting on bread and water (or any other version for fasting which is more tailored for your situation), and He will come again.

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