1. Este es el ayuno perfecto y razonable: que nuestro hombre interior ore cuando el exterior practica el ayuno. La oración franquea más fácilmente el cielo gracias al ayuno, ya que entonces el hombre, espiritualizado, se asocia a los ángeles y se une a Dios con mayor libertad.

This is the perfect and reasonable fast: our interior man prays while the exterior practices fasting. Prayer more easily crosses to Heaven thanks to fasting. Since then man, spiritualized, is associated with the angels and more freely unites with God.

2. Por causa del ayuno se revelan incluso los secretos de los misterios celestes y se descubren los arcanos del divino sacramento. Así es como Daniel mereció conocer, por mediación del ángel, el significado oculto de los misterios (Dn 10,1 ss.), pues esta virtud manifiesta las revelaciones de los ángeles y sus mensajes.

2. It is because of the fast that the secrets of heavenly mysteries are revealed and the secrets of the divine sacrament are discovered. This is how Daniel deserved to know, through the angel, the hidden meaning of the mysteries (Dn 10.1 seq.), As this virtue manifests the revelations of angels and messages.

. Los ayunos constituyen armas eficaces frente a las tentaciones diabólicas, ya que con la abstinencia se vencen pronto. De ahí que también nuestro Señor y Salvador nos aconseje que las superemos con el ayuno y la oración al decir: Este linaje (de demonios) no sale si no es con oración y ayuno (Mt 17,21), pues los espíritus inmundos se lanzan con mayor violencia allí donde ven más abundancia de manjares y bebidas.


3. The fasts are effective weapons against diabolical temptations, because with abstinence it expires soon. Hence also our Lord and Savior advised us to overcome with fasting and prayer saying: This type (demon) does not come out except by prayer and fasting (Mt 17:21), because evil spirits release more violence where they see more abundance of food and drink.

. Los santos mientras pasan la vida en este mundo, mantienen su cuerpo sediento por el deseo del rocío celeste. Por ello dice el Salmo: Sedienta de ti está mi alma, y de cuántas maneras mi carne (Sal 60,2). Porque entonces la carne está sedienta de Dios cuando por el ayuno guarda abstinencia y languidece. La abstinencia vigoriza y mata: vigoriza el espíritu y mata el cuerpo.

The saints, as they pass through this life maintain their bodies thirsty for the desire of the heavenly dew. for them it is as the psalm says, "my soul is thirsting for you and so many ways my soul (Psalm 60:2) Bercause then the flesh is thirsting for God when by fasting keeps abstinence and languishes, the abstinence strengthens and kills. It strengthens the spirit and kills the body.

5. Muchas veces la abstinencia se practica con simulación, y el ayuno, a su vez, se realiza con hipocresía. Algunos, en efecto, laceran sus cuerpos con asombrosa abstinencia, desfigurando su rostro, como dice el Evangelio, para que los hombres vean que ayunan (Mt 6,16). Por ello demudan su rostro, afligen su cuerpo, prorrumpen en grandes suspiros de corazón. Antes de morir se entregan a suplicios mortales y llevan a cabo un esfuerzo tan laborioso no por amor de Dios, sino para asombro de la admiración humana.

5. Many times abstinence is practiced with simulation and the fast is realize with hypocisy. Some people in effect lacerate their bodies with amazing abstinence, disfiguring their face, as the Gospel says, "so that men could see that they were fasting" (Matthew 6:16) Therefore they disfigure their faces, afflict their bodies, burst into great sighs of the heart. Before dying they deliver themselves to deadly tortures and perform this laborious effort not for the love of God, but for the amazement of human admiration.

6. Algunos se mortifican de modo sorprendente para aparecer santos ante los curiosos; pero tal práctica de la abstinencia no debe estimarse en ellos virtud, sino vicio, pues hacen mal uso de un bien.

some people mortify themselves in a surprising manner in order to appear holy in front of the curious; but such a practice of abstinence should not be regarded as virtue in them, but rather a vice. They make bad use of somthing good.

7. El ayuno y la limosna quieren se les practique en secreto, para que sólo Dios, que todo lo ve, premie el mérito de las buenas obras, pues quienes lo hacen en presencia de la gente no son, en modo alguno, premiados por Dios, ya que según la frase evangélica, recibieron su recompensa de los hombres. (Mt 6,5).

Fasting and the giving of alms are best practiced in secret so that only God, who sees everything, will reward the merit of the good works, for those who do them (good works) in the presence of the people, are never in any way, rewarded by God, so that according to the evangelic phrase, receive their recompense from men.

8. Los ayunos acompañados de buenas obras son agradables a Dios. Mas los que se privan de alimentos y obran el mal, imitan a los demonios, que nunca tienen comida pero siempre iniquidad. Aquel, pues, que se priva de los manjares rectamente se abstiene de las malas acciones y de la ambición.

8. Fasting accompanied by good works are agreeable to God. But those who deprive themselves and do evil imitate the demons, who never take food yet they always do iniquity. Those who refrain from delicacies rightly, also abstain from evil deeds and ambition.

9. Los que por deseo de execrar la comida y no por voto de abstinencia se privan de alimento de carnes, ellos más bien son dignos de execración, por cuanto rechazan una criatura puesta por Dios al servicio del hombre. En efecto, para los fieles, nada se considera manchado y nada impuro, conforme al testimonio del apóstol Pablo: Todo es limpio para los limpios, mas para los contaminados e infieles nada hay limpio, porque están contaminadas tanto su mente como su corazón. (Tit 1,15).

9. Those who by desire defy the desire for food and not for a vow of abstinence deprive themselves of flesh meat,  are more worthy of condemnation, because they reject a child placed by God to serve man. Indeed, for the faithful, nothing is considered tainted and nothing unclean, according to the testimony of the Apostle Paul: Everything is clean to the clean, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is clean, because they are contaminated both your mind and your heart. (Tit 1:15).

10. Se desprecia el ayuno que al atardecer se repara con abundante comida, pues no hay que valorar la abstinencia cuando luego ha seguido el hartazgo.

10. There is disapproval for the fast which is repaired with abundant food in the evening. Well, there is no value in the fast which is followed up with abundant food.

11. Se desprecia el ayuno que al atardecer se compensa con placeres, ya que dice el profeta Isaías: He aquí que en el día de vuestro ayuno se halla vuestro deleite (Is 58,3), pues deleite significan los placeres. Y así como el reclamar la deuda, los pleitos, las rivalidades y los golpes, también los placeres reprueba el profeta en día de ayuno.

11. It is disapproved the fast which at night compensates itself with pleasures, As the Prophet Isaiah said; "On your fast day you carry out your own pursuits," Here pursuits signifies pleasures, And as the debt collector reclaims the debt, the rivalries, fighting, also the pleasures are reproved by the prophet on the day of fasting.

12. Porque todo el día imagina banquetes en su mente quien por la tarde se prepara delicias para satisfacer su gula.

12. That is because all day dreaming of banquets in his mind he who in the afternoon prepares delicacies in order to satisfy his gluttony.

13. No hay que aplicar al cuerpo excesiva austeridad, no sea que, por estar el cuerpo sobrecargado con el peso de la abstinencia, luego ni pueda obrar el mal ni se decida a practicar el bien. Por tanto, hay que moderar el trato del cuerpo con inteligente discreción, a saber, que no se agote por completo y que no goce demasiada libertad.

One doesn't have to subject the body to excessive austerity. Otherwise if the body is overloaded under the weight of abstinence it wont be able to do either evil or good. Therefore we must modeerate teh treatment of the body with intelligent discretion, mainly so that it doesn't fail completely nor that it enjoy too much freedom.

14. Si prevalece la excesiva flaqueza de la carne, nadie puede alcanzar la perfección. Pues, aunque uno tenga deseos de santidad, con todo, no le es posible consumar la obra meritoria que en su intención desea realizar.

If excessive weakness of the flesh prevails then no one can attain perfection. For although one has the desire for holiness they would be unable to consumate the meritorious work that is their intention to perform.

15. La excesiva debilidad del cuerpo quebranta, asimismo, el vigor del alma y logra que flaquee también su natural ingenio, ni puede ésta llevar a término bien alguno a causa de su debilidad.

15. Excessive body weakness also breaks the force of the soul and causes her natural wit also to falter, nor can it lead to any good end because of its weakness.
