  • I find this piece both interesting and informative.

    As an aside, since the early 80's I have made it a practice to fast for 10 days at least once a year, usually around Lent. As is the case in many areas of life, if one programs the mind ahead of time, then fasting is easily done and little strain is felt. By the end of 10 days, I am always full of energy and feel reinvigorated. So, I guess fasting would not count as penance for me.

    I can't imagine crawling on my knees from Brazil to Harmony. London to Rome would be totally out of the question!!
