Christ took on human flesh in Jesus, and in our flesh, we put on Christ. This "putting on Christ" is not a mental or other worldly kind of thing, but it is very physical and bodily. We experience God in the flesh. We experience God through our senses. To be truly spiritual involves the body. The things we do in our body, along with the Spirit, make us who we were created to be. Take the example of a hunter. If someone talks a lot about hunting, reads books, and hangs around with other hunters, is he a hunter? To be a hunter is more than just talking and words. It might include some of the above things, but to be a hunter one prepares, practices, and then actually goes out on a cold, wet, and windy day and hunts. Every- thing adds to the experience, everything belongs: Trophies are nice, but the joy is in the hunt. To be a hunter (or a football player, a writer, or whatever) involves the body. Ascetical practices like fasting, prayer, or being silent do not make one a Christian, but it helps the experience much like sitting in a soggy marsh is part of the hunting experience. These practices put us in con- tact with the Spirit because when do I want to eat a hamburger the most? When I am fasting! Who helps me keep my fast all day long? The Spirit. Fasting becomes exercise for me to give up other things like hate, judg- ment, gossip, and thinking badly about others or thinking myself to be su- perior. Some people think that fasting or other practices of self denial are punishing the body. Ascetical practices do not punish, they discipline the body and train it much like a hunter would practice at the shooting range or train his dog. Fasting keeps us spiritually fit. It is living in the Spirit with your body, which is exactly what life is. Ascetical practices affirm our goodness. We are good. God made us so. To deny our goodness and think we are bad is a trick of the devil. It is a denial of the goodness of creation. A hunter practices because it helps him or her become the hunter they want to be. It is an affirmation of who they already are. The same is true for a Christian who fasts or performs some other practice. We make our bodies available to the Spirit. Ascesis, together with life experience and the Holy Spirit transform us into who we are truly meant to be. When a person fasts, the attitude is, "I am not.this weakness that can't go a day without a piece of meat or a glass of milk. I refuse to accept that this is all I am." You can include things like gossip, or pride, or whatever vice you may have. In fasting, we invite the Lord into our very being, not just for help, but that He might live and act in us. To fast is to refuse that you will be defined by your shortcomings and flaws. It is acting out the desire to be like God and to be in union with Him who created us in His image. Ascesis is a way of denying those things in myself that are not of God. There are many wonderful examples of people fasting and being trans- formed into who they were created to be. Each of our churches have many examples. One common thread is holiness. After the death of St. Athanasius (d. 373), who was the bishop and patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, someone wrote this: "We were sorrowful because Christ reigned in such love through Bishop Athanasius. We experienced in him the Lord. He was always the same man we knew, but in all he did, in all the ways he loved, we saw Christ." e witAthan as ius allowed hims elf to be transformed. He became like Chl ile remaining himself. This is the goal of fasting and of Christian, hyou. f, ) ,!
