Leah gets Fr. Michael O'Loughlin to explain what asceticism even is anyway, and why it's not just for seasons like Lent and Advent, but something we can (and should!) get in the habit of practicing all year. It's not just about detachment, but about coming to recognize how much we need God. Father Michael gives some great advice about learning how to start with small actions and grow into greater and greater freedom.
