Did you know the Virgin Mary has requested everyone who is able to fast on bread and water on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year?
In her message of July 21, 1982, the Virgin Mary said the following:
"The best fast is on bread and water. Through fasting and prayer one can stop wars, one can suspend the natural laws of nature. Works of charity cannot replace fasting... Everyone except the sick, has to fast."
