Seeking God's will, NOT our will -- the benefits of Lenten fasting.
#1
I was at a TLM on Monday evening, and the priest gave a truly beautiful sermon on the benefit of following the Church's traditional fasting/abstinence laws.  In his words, it's a perfect way to submit our will to God's holy will, by submitting ourselves totally to the authority of His Church.  I can't quite explain why or how, but the words just really resonated with me.  I think that, despite my prayers and fastings, I've often remained very proud and self-willed.  I'm going to pray that everything I experience be offered to God as a sacrifice, and that HIS will always be done, not my will.  I think this is the way we REALLY "let go and let God", and FULLY submit to the will of God.
