Spiritual Fasting

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

St. Tikhon of Zadonsk said, “Let your mind fast from vain thoughts; let your memory fast from remembering evil; let your will fast from evil desire; let your eyes fast from bad sights: turn your away eyes that you may not see vanity; let your ears fast from vile songs and slanderous whispers; let your tongue fast from slander, condemnation, blasphemy, falsehood, deception, foul language and every idle and rotten word; let your hands fast from killing and from stealing another’s goods; let your legs fast from going to evil deeds: turn away from evil, and do good.”
