Pander TKese in your Yfeart y Dennis Justison St. Basil, 330-379, asks us what good is your fast from flesh when you devour your neighbor? Fasting from food is good, but we must I keep in mind the purpose of our fast: to become more like Christ. li We become more Christ-like through love. Read chapter 13 of I st Corinthians. For verses 4-8, substitute your name for the word love. I Read it out loud. Do the words ring true? Do you feel uneasy? Sim- • ple exercises like this reveal our goodness and our failings. fall a little short, don't feel guilty or fear you'llgo to hell. This is not the Gospel nor is it the spirit of fasting. Jesus doesn't come to punish us and add to ourfear and pain. He embraces our pain and heals us with His love. He gives us mercy 'so we can pass it on to others. Too often we notice sin in others and ignore our own. While nor- mal, we can do better. Use your prayers and your fasting to reveal what lies within your own heart. Then, your fasting and prayer will become more effective because they will become a healing balm. They will bring you into contact with the healer of your soul: Jesus. We are all searching something or someone to save us, a reason for being. When we /re young we look for it in sports, being popular, or looking cool• As we age, we seek better jobs, bigger homes and cars, positions of power and honor. But these don't save us and they aren't fulfilling either. One day it dawns on us that we've been living a lie and we've been duped by the message of culture that I am what I have. Fasting can help us break through these illusions. Fasting can help me see myself for who I am. As I confront my hunger or struggle against some bad habit I come to see myself as needy before the Almighty. I reach a point when I must admit that I have nothing to boast of. I must admit that I am weak. In fact, I am nothing. I am so small that within a few years of my death, no one will know who I ; was. A peasant man walked into the great St Peter's in Rome, the largest church in the world. In awe, and with a bit of sarcasm, he said, "Wow, all this for a fisherman!" Jesus wants to build each of us into something great too, but through His greatness not ours. Deal with your sin on the inside, and  not your neighbor's. Fast from bigotry, anger, and judgment of oth- ii ers. Practice by being merciful and forgiving of yourself. Then you can be this for others. Who is the greatest in the Kingdom? Look at St. Peter, Mother i; Teresa, or Martin Luther King. You see saints, but you also see peo- i ple who served and spent their lives for the good of others. We re- ; member them because they took the most daring of journeys: they searched deep into their own hearts. They were humbled by what they saw, had mercy, and sought Mercy Himself. In doing so, their sin and pain was transformed enabling them to transform the sin and pain of others. We are afraid to be small, afraid to ask for forgiveness, and we are /, afraid of being forgotten. But the paradox is that the smaller we te- i come, the greater we are. We become less afraid and are better able to be a disciple of Jesus. The journey begins in the heart. Fasting helps. While fasting is not an end in itself, may the hunger we feel for food , xpress our hunger for Jesus and reflect our desire to be like Him.  (  i! Peace with you. . i   ' Librarian's.
