Fasting – A Positive Approach is a convenient little booklet about the positive experience fasting can be for Catholics. Small enough to fit into a purse or pocket it is easy to carry around and a quick read. This pamphlet on Fasting offers basic insights on the practice of fasting and addresses such issues as: the difference between a religious and non-religious fast, the spiritual benefits of fasting, and changes in Catholic Church regulations over the years about fasting. As Catholics we are called to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. For Catholics, fasting has much more to do with self-fulfillment than self-denial.
