Friday Fast

With the Feast of the Ascension behind us, we now return to fasting on Friday following the tradition of the church.  Eat and drink nothing with calories in it until 5 PM.  Focus your attention on the other forms of sustenance you find in the day–conversations with friends, a quick prayer, a reading.  What sustains you beyond food?  What are the specific ways you live on more than bread alone?
