It is possible for one who
fasts not to be rewarded for his fasting. How? When indeed we
abstain from foods, but do not abstain from iniquities; when we do
not eat meat, but gnaw to pieces the homes of the poor; when we do
not become drunkards with wine, but we become drunkards with evil
pleasures; when we abstain all the day, but all the night we spend
in unchastened shows. Then what is the benefit of abstention from
foods, when on the one hand you deprive your body of a selected
food, but on the other you offer your soul unlawful food.
