In this companion volume to the popular When You Pray, L. Joseph Letendre explores the underpinnings of the Church's practice of fasting and of ascetic discipline in general. Rather than being preoccupied with the details of food regulations, he helps the reader understand the purpose of fasting and how to enter into it more willingly and fully.  L. Joseph Letendre’s When You Fast is a guidebook for experienced Orthodox Christians, those new to the Faith, or those questioning why we Orthodox fast. A must-read before each fast, it’s a perfect reminder that fasting is not only an obedience, but a grace-filled privilege.   104 pages, 4.5 x 0.22 x 7 inches
