The Good Catholic Life is taking a short Spring hiatus from live shows until early June. In the meantime, we’re bringing you some of our favorite shows from the past two years. Look for all-new shows to return after June 7.

Today we bring you an encore presentation of our discussion of spiritual fasting. Fasting is one of the three pillars of Lent and of the whole Christian life, including prayer and almsgiving. Scot Landry and Fr. Mark O’Connell talk with Andy LaVallee of LiveTheFast.com and Msgr. Charles Murphy, author of the book “The Spirituality of Fasting”, about rediscovering the practice, the spiritual fruits it provides, the practical aspects of fasting, and a one-day retreat this weekend open to all.

Complete shownotes may be found on the original airdate’s show page.
