The Reign of Christ. Book One. Chapter Twelve: Lent and Other Fasts, and the Taking of Food

And so it is anti-Christian to prescribe fasting for Christians as something per se necessary for salvation. For the Lord and the apostles, although they condemned making a ceremony out of fasting, nevertheless left its observance free for Christians; just as fasting cannot be piously accomplished unless it is undertaken with a willing spirit.
