“This is my biggest challenge yet. So happy.”
Being challenged and facing the challenge, requires courage. Our Lady of Medjugorje said on October 2, 2018:
Today, we begin the 9-day fast on bread and water, for the Beginning of the Reign of Our Lady. A Friend of Medjugorje has often said that the hardest part of any major decision, is the decision itself. Be courageous, all those joining in this fast, and those who have not yet decided.
For basic fasting bread recipes, visit our Fasting section here. Also, if you order the newly updated Fasting book here, you will find the “big” recipe, the Italian bread recipe from a Friend of Medjugorje’s family, complete with step by step pictures. Here below are just a few words from others joining in this fast:
For all those joining in the fast, you are part of something bigger than yourself. Jesus began His mission by fasting and prayer. Following in His footsteps gives one power, the power of a deep spirituality. Our Lady said on October 2, 2018:
As one empties their hearts during these days of fasting, one becomes poor in spirit, and is filled with wealth – promised by the truth of Our Lady’s words. Believe them, you who are joining in this fast. Become wealthy and receive the promise of Our Lady’s words of October 2, 2018:
