Fridays have been associated with penance and fasting in the Church from the earliest days.
Fasting is about repentance -- about emptying the soul of obstacles to grace. Fasting is about openness to God -- about anticipating and waiting with expectant faith, with heart out-stretched, for His presence, His action, His Word.
We invite those who regularly join us for First Friday adoration to fast in preparation. Let us make of ourselves, individually, and as Encounter., a pleasing offering to God: open, empty, and ready to receive all that Jesus wishes to give to us and through us to others,
