During the days of fasting, there should be no quarrels and no contentions, but one must persist in the praises of God and the necessary work. For the Lord convicts those who make contentions and quarrels during the time of lent and who exact debts from debtors. Saying through the prophet, “Behold, in the days of your fast your will is found. And you call in all your debtors. Behold, your fast leads towards quarrels and contentions and you impiously strike with your fist” (Is 58:3,4).
