Question time for my pastor

I asked Fr. Hawk about the Eucharistic fast question that came up last week. He told me to be at peace.   I am free to do more than what the Church gives as a bare minimum but there is no shame or insult to the Lord on the part of average Joe or Jane Catholic in the doing the one hour fast. Father himself fasts from midnight but pointed out that  he also says Mass at 8:30 in the morning.

It has occurred to me that, if I am tempted to bewail the ridiculously easy penances and disciplines the Church imposes in our time, maybe instead I should be thankful that Providence has so disposed things in this ever harsher and more pitiless world that even the weakest people of good will can comply with the law.
