Topic: Do you fast? Give me proof of it by your works… - St. John Chrysostom

  If you see a poor man, take pity on him.  If you see a friend being  honored, do not envy him.  Do not let only your mouth fast, but also the eye, and the ear, and the feet, and the hands, and all the members of our bodies.  Let the hands fast, by being free of avarice.  Let the feet fast, by ceasing to run after sin.  Let the eyes fast, by disciplining them not to glare at that which is sinful… Let the ear not  listening to evil talk and gossip… Let the mouth fast from foul words and unjust criticism.

For what good is it if we abstain from birds and fishes, but bite and devour our brothers?
