True Food and True Drink with Fr. Edward Looney

Feb 22, 2024

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. 

1 John 4:18

Have you ever considered how fasting prepares our hearts to receive God’s grace? And how, by disciplining our bodies, we can weaken sinful tendencies and open ourselves to the transformative power of the Holy Spirit?

Through spiritual fasting, I have discovered true hunger – the body and blood of Jesus Christ. I had no idea I was stuffing myself with sugar, flour, and alcohol, instead of going to Him in prayer and sacraments.

I was seeking comfort from the world – not the actual True Food that would satisfy me. I learned that comfort food and drink will never satisfy me.

Mary, the Mother of God, points us to her Son as the True Food and True Drink. This mystery is the center of our faith as Catholics.

We tend to focus so much on earthly food – that we need! We do meal prep and focus on what we can and should eat according to the day. But do we do spiritual meal prep? That is what I was missing all along.
