Fasting is one of the four main messages of Medjugorje. Our Lady said on June 6, 1988:


“…I ask you to renew in yourselves the messages I have given to you. These are messages of prayer, peace, fasting, and penance. Make some penance yourselves. All of the other messages come from these four basic ones, but also live the other ones…”


Here below are a few resources from a Friend of Medjugorje as a spiritual help for fasting. The materials you will receive from here are unlike any you will get anywhere. The level of commitment in living out the spirit of Our Lady’s words are evident in the writings, and provide a challenge and incentive to go beyond our wants and desires, and place ourselves in the desires of Our Lady. –
