St Vincent de Paul Society - Lent is a time of fasting. In Isaiah the Lord says: "This is the fasting that I wish: Releasing those unjustly, untying the thongs on the yoke, setting free the oppressed, breaking every yoke; sharing your bread with the hungry, sheltering the oppressed and the homeless; clothing the naked when you see them and not turning your back on your own. Then your light shall break forth like the dawn.: (Isaiah (58:6-8).
