Thank you for your interest in the 40 day BREAD and WATER Fasting PERSONAL Retreat for Lent 2023.
Below you will find some additional details about it. Please pray and begin to prepare yourselves spiritually and mentally for it. Blessings:
1) The retreat will run from ASH Wednesday February 22, 2023 to Holy Saturday April 08, 2023 (To celebrate and culminate on Easter Sunday April 09!)
2) The retreat consists on eating only bread and water - 3 times per day 6 days a week during 40 days. We rest on Sundays, as it is considered A FEAST DAY. However, we recommend to not "over eat" on Sundays. You can utilize different types of bread (without sugary additives, cheeses, etc.), but we will provide more information to the people that sign up.
3) We will use sacramentals such as blessed OIL and SALT daily during the retreat. We will also need the sacraments of Holy Eucharist (as often as possible) and Confession (at least once before retreat and one during retreat).
4) Once per week on Monday's Feb 27, March 6, 13, 20, 24, we will be having a 1hr Zoom meeting (at 7PM CST) to pray and discuss our progress.
5) We will hold an info session on Thursday February 09th at 7PM CST - link will be provided later to answer any specific questions.
