"Appetite of the what?"

posted by letter shredder at 9:42 AM

Since Lent has just started last Wednesday, I decided to fast seriously.


Hoping that I could equate fasting to eating fast, I asked Obi-Wan about its basic concepts since he spent a significant amount of time in the seminary.


He told me that man has three kinds of appetite (take note): appetite for food, appetite for sleep, and appetite for flesh.


Rhyan who was with us asked Obi-Wan if the appetite for flesh isn't the same as appetite for food. Of course, the latter played along and said that it could be.


"That would be edible but not consumable," I said and Obi-Wan agreed.


After a few more comments and laughs, Obi-Wan cut the conversation because a young lady (obviously referring to me) is with them, so I turned to face Rhyan and asked, "Since when did you come out?"


After some more facts about sacrificing and offering pain for a good cause, we reached my place. Before I could close the car door, Obi-Wan asked me, "So what are you going to abstain from?"


"Sleep."


*grin*

Third day of fasting. Another day of abstaining.

Most of us still don't know the true meaning of fasting.

It is giving to the needy, respecting the widows, and look for the orphans. Believe it or not, it is written.

We should do this with our right hand, without the knowledge of our left hand.



Happy weekend!!!
