Today is day four of our nine days of prayer and fasting. After receiving Communion on Saturday, the image of a snowball came. The fast began on Saturday with a certain number of souls participating but as those who have pushed a snowball through the snow know...as you push it more snow is added. It keeps getting bigger. We hope the same will be true of this fast. May Our Lord keep drawing more and more souls to offer a sacrifice through prayer and fasting. If you read the story entitled, "An Invitation" several days ago, you might consider reading it again. We have included the story again below. If you have started the fast it may give you more resolve. If you haven't started you may find yourself getting drawn in. The snowball shown above was made by my youngest son last winter. Thinking of the summer to come he put it in our freezer. There it stayed...save for the occasional time it came falling out of our freezer. Well on Saturday it saw the light of the strong sun. It was melting quickly but we got a picture of it. The snowball illustrated something else... time is going fast.
Don't waste time. There is not time like this moment to start something like a fast. I am praying in a special way for those reading this that they may be assisted in fasting if they choose to begin.
Also ask your guardian angel tonight to help you. We still have 5 more days to go.
Angels Pray for Us!
