In the words of Pope Francis

Fast from hurting words and say kind words. 
Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude. 
Fast from anger and be filled with patience. 
Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope. 
Fast from worries and have trust in God. 
Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.
Fast from pressures and be prayerful. 
Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy.
Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others. 
Fast from grudges and be reconciled. 
Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.

Psalm for the Week

The Lord anointed my eyes; I went, I washed, I saw and I believed in God. - John 9:11, 38
