Vox Pop: Will you be fasting this lent?

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Newsbook.com.mt went around the University of Malta and Valletta to ask the public whether they would be fasting for lent. The respondents were asked whether they would be fasting for lent and if yes, if they would be following Pope Francis’ appeal to refrain on getting angry at others.

Traditionally fasting consist of not eating meats on Wednesday and Friday. Some people said that throughout the forty days they will refrain from eating sweets as part of their fast. A respondent said that she would try restricting herself from using social media.

While some respondents said they would try to refrain from negative emotions others said that they were too nervous to control their anger.
