I'm might be missing the reason why Catholic prohibits eating red meats duringlenten. And I wanna know there are still people who would follow tradition and not consume red meat. Would you?

It's usually on Friday's only. And yes, we as Catholics usually do follow this. At Catholic schools, they have pizza on Fridays.

I don't need to fast and not eat red meats during the Lenten season. First of all, I'm a vegetarian. What is the point of abstaining from meat for a short time? I think it is ridiculous to just abstain from it in a day.. no point. Also, I don't have to fast because I observe discipline in my diet. One shouldn't wait for such occasions just to be a little good on a certain day.

Lent started long back going to end on 06.04.07. Since lent started( a month ago), i refrain from drinking alchohol and eating all the meat (red & white). But I take Fish (sea).
