Advent 16: 2018

Once two brothers went to visit an old man.  It was not the old man's habit, however, to eat every day.  When he saw the brothers, he welcomed them with joy, and said:  "Fasting has its own reward, but if you eat for the sake of love you satisfy two commandments, for you give up your own will and also fulfill the commandment of refreshing others."
