Fast, Pray, Give

Today is CAFOD’s Harvest Fast Day 2019

815 million people worldwide go to bed hungry every night. Think of 10 people you know and love. Can you imagine one out of those 10 suffering from chronic malnourishment?

Today we can do a little something to participate in this One Suffering of our Common Home, choosing simplicity. I had plain porridge for breakfast. I will have a sandwich, banana and a bowl of soup for my other meals today. The money saved I will donate to the CAFOD’s Harvest Appeal. Can we eat simply – perhaps giving up one meal or having a bowl of soup – and give that money to those in need?
