The Caritas Community will be fasting:

Wednesday, April 13
Thursday, April 14
Friday, April 15

Last month, the Caritas Community did a 3-day fast, which we do from time to time. Afterwards, a Friend of Medjugorje told the Community that in this time, especially during the time of the 54-Day Rosary novena, that he felt like we should be doing a 3-day fast every month, in particular during this Year of Mercy. Just a few days ago, a Caritas supporter wrote to us:

“I have joined the 54-day novena with you. On Saturday March 9, I clicked on ‘random message’ (on and it gave me:

“December 20, 1983 (Interior Locutions)


“For the group’s intention:

‘Fast on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.’

“I was inspired yesterday to pass this along to you.”

This was confirmation of what a Friend of Medjugorje had said he already felt we needed to do. After deciding to make these three days, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, (April 13, 14, and 15) as days of fasting, another supporter wrote to us the following, not knowing themselves that we were going to be fasting these three days:

“I am praying the 54-day Rosary Novena with all who are participating. I have prayed many 54-day Rosary Novenas before, but this Novena is especially profound. I have had such intense thoughts, heartaches, soul searching, sorrow and joy. I am a little surprised, but I think many other people are probably going through the same emotions. I think a lot about souls. I think a lot about eternal life. Today I selected a random message as I generally do each day. I feel that I am to share this message.

“March 17, 1984

‘Pray and fast, so that during this novena, God will fill you with His Power.’

“What a beautiful and wonderful message. My hope is that many souls will convert, including some of my family members. May God bless all.”

Our Lady is continuing to move very powerfully during the days of this 54-day Rosary Novena. We extend the privilege of fasting these three days to anyone who wants to join with the Caritas Community. The more you pray, greater is the grace.

August 18, 1982 

“…The more you believe firmly, the more you pray and fast for the same intention, the greater is the grace and the mercy of God…”

Let us continue to increase grace during the days of this Novena.

In the Love of Our Lady,
Caritas of Birmingham
Operated by the Community of Caritas
