Sinopsis

"I read your book from cover to cover. Your words completely captivated me and have convinced me on the importance of fasting. I knew already the benefits of fasting, but I wasn’t aware of all its attributes, that you explain so well. Reading this book one discovers fasting.

As we know, Our Lady in Medjugorje continuously insists on the importance of fasting, but we avoid putting into practice something when it means we have to make a sacrifice. We struggle to convince ourselves to actually fast. The arguments you present, and the examples that you give in this book, show very clearly the reason why Our Lady insists so persistently on something so precious for the soul and the body, for the apostate on earth and for the souls in Purgatory. I thank you for emphasising such an important topic, very often mentioned in Sacred Scripture, so precious for the living and for the intercession of the dead.

The final part of your work, with the words from the saints, will convince even the most reluctant. This book will be nothing less than a true discovery of fasting to whoever reads it."

Don Gabriele Amorth

Sister Emmanuel was born in France in 1947. She graduated from Sorbonne University with a diploma in Literature and History of Fine arts. She entered the Catholic Community of the Beatitudes in 1976 and has been living in Medjugorje since 1989. She travels the whole world, bringing the message of hope in the spirit of the New Evangelization. Many of her books and other media productions are bestsellers.
