Vow to ban swearing

NAPOLIONI Lalama believes it's time he stops swearing.

The Savusavu, Cakaudrove man was part of thousands of Catholics who crowded the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Suva on Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of another Lenten season.

Ash Wednesday marked an important moment for Mr Lalama as he has made a promise to cut down on his swearing, something that has been part of his life since his young days.

"I always swear and now that I am growing old, I have come to realise that I should not because it isn't good," he said.

"I have been in Namosi since last year building a church and this was where I have come to realise that I should stop swearing."

Christians around the country observe Lent and give up the luxuries of life in commemoration of the 40 days Jesus Christ spent in the desert.
