The topic of “Fasting” comes up most frequently during the days of lent. As most of us know, Medjugorje has made “fasting” on bread and water a way of life for millions of people around the globe.
The Visionary Marija asked Our Lady how much bread and water we should eat in the days of fasting
Marija: At the beginning Our Lady asked for fasting once a week, on Fridays and asked for it to be only bread and water for twenty-four hours.
At the beginning we had our experiences, because, when Our Lady proposed fasting, we were not used to it and we waited for midnight to start eating those things that we had left out during the day.
However, Our Lady did not tell us anything about it whether it was good or bad.
The most important thing is not to eat anything for 24 hours, from midnight to midnight, except bread and water.
Once we asked Our Lady how much bread and water we could take, but she replied that it is not important how much we took, but giving up all other things, taking only bread and water during that day.
