My husband had a comment on yesterday's post:
Perhaps all of us who are opposed to the wicked mandate to starve Terri Schiavo beginning tomorrow should declare a day of complete fasting, befitting of a Friday in Lent, but also as an act of solidarity.I think it's an excellent idea. I'm in.
We could all offer up every stomach growl and drained moment during the day as a silent prayer for Terri and that those in control of this situation will have a change of heart.
What do you think?
Unless something near miraculous happens (read here for info about the stalling on bills to protect Terri and other disabled people) Terri won't have a choice tomorrow, but at least we can suffer a tiny bit with her.
I said yesterday in my post about the plan to kill Terri: "It is evil."
Well, Jesus said that certain evil spirits are only driven out by prayer and fasting. (Matt. 17:20) Maybe this is one of those cases.
Here's a page with information about the Catholic tradition of fasting.
An interesting story about finding that site: I had done numerous Google searches and couldn't find a page I really wanted to link to about fasting. Finally, I said a little prayer to the Holy Spirit, did one more search, and found this page dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel, one of my favorites. I'd never seen the site before, but I like it. I particularly liked this page, because it includes a couple more of my favorites: Padre Pio, and C.S. Lewis.
Please read the above link, and then consider joining the fast for Terri tomorrow.
