Holy Fast: Hungering for Christ

This episode, which first aired on Passion Sunday, focuses on the Lenten practice of fasting, drawing from the audiobook of Emily Stimpson Chapman’s The Catholic Table. We all know that we need to fast. As St Augustine put it, fasting and almsgiving are “the two wings of prayer.” But there are wise and unwise ways to go about it. With great wit and the teaching of the Church, Emily shares how she learned to fast effectively after her return to the Church and her recovery from an eating disorder.
