  • What does Pope Shenouda III Say about Fasting?

    I stumbled upon these beautiful sayings and I couldn’t find a better time to share them during lent. This is my personal efforts in translating his sayings. Click here if you want the actual source of his sayings in Arabic. "By true fasting, man can entrain the heart of God" True fasting is in which the fasting person trains self-control and continues with self-control as a way of life." "There must be an abstaining period, because if we ate from the beginning of the day without abstaining, we would become vegetarians and not fasting." "Make sure that fasting has changed anything in you. Consider how much you have fasted and you’re still the same! "The most dangerous thing when some are tired from fasting; where the body is not nourished and the soul is also not fed and this situation makes fasting a period of deprivation or torture, and this is not the spiritual meaning of fasting." "Our fathers didn't fast just to follow the rules. They did not fast in obedience to the commandment, but to love the commandment. Obedience is a beginner’s degree, but love is the degree of maturity and perfection.” "It is known that leaving food or some kind of it is nothing but training to leave everything for God" "Put before you two observations in your fasting: the first is that you do not ask for certain foods that you like. The second is that if put in front of you such desired foods- without asking - do not fill your cravings for them."

Our Donations and contributions should increase during Lent. Blessed are those who have mercy, who give to the poor and fast and pray. Work on obtaining a new virtue or eliminating a bad habit. Start the fast with confessing and pick a virtue with your father of confession to work on during Lent or pick a bad habit that you're trying to stop. DO Less- Talk Less, Eat Less and Sleep Less- When you talk more you sin more. When you eat to your fullest, you lose the value of fasting. Excessive sleeping takes away from suppressing your body during lent. Deny yourself. Take care of others before yourself. Wherever you go make sure those around you are comfortable and well taken care of before you.

My Story It all began in 2015 When I became a mother, a creative impulse took over me to create items for my baby girl (from headbands to fabric shoes). Three months after her birth, I made her first quiet book! ​ Another contribution was my service in church. I served in sunday school in my Coptic Orthodox church for many years. I served in several classes from 1st to 12th grade. I realized how kids grew distant from God and church as they got older. With my love to craft and my zeal for my daughter's spiritual growth and my sunday school children, I started making things that can bridge the gap between the little ones and the church.
