Catholics are known for the ascetic practice of fasting, especially during Lent. Practicing fasting can lead us to a transformation of mind, body, and spirit if it is focused on God. Although the practice is not as popular among Catholics as it once was, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II have called for the Church to rediscover this venerable practice.

“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while” (Mk 6:31). Jesus invites us to take a step back from our lives and allow him to restore ourselves through spiritual retreat. There are a number of resources that can help nourish us while we seek God on a personal retreat.
