Are You Fasting With Us? Here’s a Free Download

October 7, 2020 A.D.

About six-hundred people are joining us for the 9-day bread and water fast. For those fasting, as well as others who are joining in prayer, we are offering…


The short book, Seize the Moment, was actually a talk by a Friend of Medjugorje to the Caritas Community, which was given during a 9-day fast. The context in explaining the need to be reinvigorated are perfect words we all need to hear, as we are now one-third of the way through the fast.

The short book is also available to be purchased through the online store here.

We are offering this short book as a free download, as yet another help for those joining us in prayer and fasting, and those who are joining us in spirit. Once you read it, be sure to share your thoughts with us below. And remember that the fasting novena prayers can be obtained by visiting this page here.

  1. I am participating in the 9 day fast. I did not sign up because I was afraid I would be unable to complete the fast as this is my first time to do it. So far it has went well but when I saw this short book I was excited because today has really been a struggle for me.
