Resource for Prayer and Meditation  Jan 21, 2008
Tessore, a Greek scholar, uses description, examples, direct quotations, and commentary to present a historical overview of fasting in a book that could be read in less than an hour, but will, for many, become a frequently used source for prayer and meditation.

He explains the austere time-frames and dietary restrictions for fasting in the early church and similar practices still followed in the Orthodox churches. In contrast, he examines current Roman Catholic practice that consists of seven activities from which men and women should abstain, especially during Lent, among them: eating foods with no restraint, sometimes accompanied by an intolerable waste of resources; frenetic activity which leaves no space for silence, reflection and prayer; and excessive use of television and other means of communication, which can make us dependent on them. He paraphrases a quotation from St. Basil, who lived in the fourth century, addressing a remarkably modern idea: "We are very good at killing our bodies through eating too much, or eating unhealthy foods; so, it would do us good for our body to suffer a little through a healthy fast."
