Monday Week 2: "Obedience is better than sacrifice"

"they will fast"
--Mk 2:18-22

The fourth precept ("You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church") ensures the times of ascesis and penance which prepare us for the liturgical feasts and help us acquire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart.
-- CCC 2043
