Default The Fast: Ten Beneficial and Ten Harmful Things

Someone had a link to this on their Facebook and I found it a good piece related to fasting. The Apostles' Fast is only 3 weeks for my parish this year--we're on the old calendar for Pascha but the new calendar otherwise.

The Fast: Ten Beneficial and Ten Harmful Things by Archpriest Andrei Efanov Jun 14th, 2012

"What is important for us to bear in mind during the fast? The fast, by definition, is a time of abstinence. Therefore, let us strive to abstain from everything that is unprofitable for our souls:...
...Of course, abstinence is fine and good but only if done for some purpose. Therefore, it is worth thinking not only about what one needs to give up, but more generally about what one should pay more attention to when fasting..."
