Lent is a forty days season of prayers, fasting and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on on sundown of Holy Thursday. It is a period of preparation to celebrate our Lords resurrection at Easter. Catholics age fourteen and older,do not eat meat starting from Ash Wednesday and all Fridays during the lent including Good Friday. Most Catholic school recognise this period and they do as required by their belief. Catholics prefer to eat fish on Fridays during this period of Lent. On Sunday during the mass,you are not suppose to clap or dance during the lent. Every Sunday you should give to the priest what you have fasted during the week so that it can be taken to the poor in the society. We all know that during fasting you can talk to God all our needs and He can listen to us.Some Catholic churches decide to demonstrate what went on during that time. They do this to show compassion
