This is a kind of sacrifice that is not sanctioned by God for it will not lead anyone to salvation!!! This is nothing but a show of hypocrisy!!! You are not to harm your body but protect it!!!
Meanwhile, a Roman Catholic Dictionary states that:
"There is no mention in the Scripture of the observance of Lent,or, indeed, of any determined time for fasting among Christians."
Reference:(London: Routledge & Kegan Paul Limited, 1960, s.v. "Lent").

This sort of thing has been going on for years in the Philippines. It's a bizarre tradition from an American standpoint, but the Filipinos think it's a mark of faithfulness.
