I would like to know the appropriate ways to fast according to our Catholic faith.
Is it supposed to be just bread and water for the day?
Does it mean abstaining from a loved food or activity?
I am a beginner at wanting to fast. Several people I know have said that their prayers for people are more effective with fasting so I want to make sure it's done as it should be done.
I've been Catholic my whole life but have been learning alot in the last few years and want to continue to draw more close to our Lord to do His will.
Thank you for your help.
