ST ISAAC THE SYRIAN on FASTING

“Fasting is the champion of every virtue, the beginning of the struggle, the crown of the abstinent, the beauty of virginity and sanctity, the splendor of chastity, the commencement of path of Christianity, the mother of prayer, the well-spring of sobriety and prudence, the teacher of stillness, and the precursor of all good works.”

Being the Feast Day of Pope Cyril VI, It is only appropriate that we look at the very man who shaped his thoughts and ideas about Christianity. When asked by anyone who his favourite saint was, Pope Cyril VI would without hesitation say St Isaac the Syrian.
