Would that today you might fast so as
to make your voice heard on high, this
is the fasting that I wish which will
release those bound unjustly and untie
the thongs of the yoke. It will set free
the oppressed. Then your light shall
break forth like the dawn, and your
wounds shall quickly be healed; your
vindication shall go before you and the
glory of the Lord shall be your
rearguard. Then you shall call and the
Lord will answer, you shall cry for help
and He will say: Here I am!
(adapted from Isaiah 59: 6-14)
