Perhaps my good example could have spared many early deaths of others and of my own.
I want to delete this post but can't
I depended too much on the church and family making fasting practical but I should have known there are many books online that can encourage you to fast if you look at amazon

Why do you need to apologize to us for not fasting? To fast or not to fast... Whatever you decide to do is none of our business. That's between you, your priest, and God.

Mike, look after your own salvation with the help of your priest, and let God take care of everyone else. It's not the first time you've been told this.
