-February is a month to look ahead.

0:00:000:00:03

-Days get longer

-and spring is in the air.

0:00:030:00:06

-It's also a time for Lent

-in the Christian calendar...

0:00:060:00:09

-..a time for contemplation and

-fasting in the lead up to Easter.

0:00:100:00:14

-In tonight's programme

-we hear about fasting...

0:00:140:00:18

-..amongst other religions in Wales.

0:00:180:00:21

-Welcome to Bangor. Welcome

-to Dechrau Canu Dechrau Canmol.

0:00:210:00:25

-As we approach Lent,

-we learn more about this period...

0:00:530:00:57

-..from Canon Robert Townsend.

0:00:580:01:00

-And what is it like to fast

-in the Muslim community in Wales?

0:01:000:01:05

-The city of Bangor,

-one of Wales' smallest cities.

0:01:130:01:16

-It's home to one

-of its oldest diocese.

0:01:170:01:19

-Back in the sixth century, St

-Deiniol established a monastery...

0:01:190:01:23

-..on the site

-of the present cathedral.

0:01:240:01:26

-Bangor became

-an important Christian centre.

0:01:260:01:29

-When the Penrhyn slate quarry

-was opened in the 18th century...

0:01:290:01:34

-..and when the modern day A5

-was opened...

0:01:350:01:37

-..a town grew around the cathedral

-and it became...

0:01:380:01:41

-..a busy commercial, cultural

-and social town in North-west Wales.

0:01:410:01:47

-Our congregational singing comes

-from the multi-faith Emaus church.

0:01:470:01:51

-It's located near the university.

0:01:520:01:55

-We begin with an appreciation

-of Jesus Christ's reign.

0:01:550:02:00

-Canon Robert Townsend

-is communications director...

0:04:490:04:52

-..for the Bangor diocese.

0:04:530:04:54

-The work the Church does

-during this time...

0:04:540:04:58

-..helps many people locally.

0:04:580:05:00

-Lent is a period

-of 40 days and 40 nights.

0:05:010:05:06

-Christians prepare for Easter...

0:05:060:05:10

-..celebrate the highlight

-of the year...

0:05:100:05:14

-..and relive the events of Jerusalem

-during the first Easter...

0:05:140:05:18

-..Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and

-the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

0:05:180:05:24

-A lot of people like to fast

-or stop doing something...

0:05:250:05:32

-..during the period of Lent.

0:05:320:05:34

-They live without something

-to try and make a difference.

0:05:340:05:38

-Sacrifice in the material world

-is difficult.

0:05:380:05:42

-Yes, we all know how difficult it is

-to live without phones, devices...

0:05:420:05:46

-..and our iThingies.

0:05:470:05:48

-It is difficult

-but it's not impossible.

0:05:480:05:53

-Is fasting as popular now

-in the modern world?

0:05:530:05:57

-Everyone likes giving up

-chocolate, bread...

0:05:580:06:01

-..or Liquorice Allsorts in my case.

0:06:010:06:04

-I love Liquorice Allsorts.

0:06:040:06:06

-Living without them for 40 days

-is very difficult for me.

0:06:070:06:11

-It's very difficult!

0:06:110:06:12

-It's not the giving something up,

-the fasting, that counts...

0:06:130:06:17

-..but trying to find something else

-in its place.

0:06:170:06:21

-If you're fasting

-and you give up chocolate...

0:06:210:06:24

-..the money you save in doing so,

-you need to do something with it.

0:06:250:06:30

-We're in Bangor now,

-in the cathedral.

0:06:300:06:33

-Here, there's a foodbank.

0:06:330:06:35

-Often, people give something up...

0:06:360:06:39

-..put the money to one side...

0:06:400:06:41

-..and spend that money

-on food for the foodbank.

0:06:420:06:45

-That helps people in our community.

0:06:450:06:49

-Whatever the colour of our skin,

-whatever our beliefs...

0:06:490:06:56

-..as a Christian,

-it's a privilege to help others...

0:06:560:07:00

-..especially during Lent

-as we look ahead to Easter.

0:07:000:07:06

-Lent is a time for contemplation...

0:09:290:09:32

-..and Christians fast

-for 40 days until Easter.

0:09:320:09:36

-Fasting is also

-an important part of Islam.

0:09:360:09:40

-During Ramadan, Muslims fast

-from the break of dawn...

0:09:400:09:46

-..until sunset every day.

0:09:460:09:49

-Sara Yassine

-can tell us more about it.

0:09:490:09:52

-Islam means a lot to me,

-it gives me a direction in life.

0:09:550:09:59

-It reminds me of what

-I should be doing every day...

0:09:590:10:03

-..and to do kind acts.

0:10:030:10:05

-I can't think of a life without it.

0:10:060:10:08

-It's gives me a purpose in life.

0:10:080:10:11

-It gives me a great boost.

0:10:120:10:14

-I like coming here.

0:10:180:10:20

-It gives me an opportunity to think.

-It's a peaceful place to visit.

0:10:200:10:24

-My family and friends come here.

0:10:240:10:26

-There's a nice community here.

0:10:270:10:31

-Ramadan is a month

-in the Islam calendar...

0:10:320:10:35

-..when Muslims fast

-from the break of dawn until sunset.

0:10:350:10:39

-We don't drink, we don't eat.

0:10:400:10:42

-We use the time

-to bring us closer to God.

0:10:420:10:45

-We read the Quran, we pray more.

0:10:450:10:47

-We try and do more kind acts...

0:10:470:10:49

-..such as helping people

-and stuff like that.

0:10:500:10:53

-Throughout the year,

-Muslims might not do enough...

0:10:530:10:57

-..or might not do

-what they should do.

0:10:570:10:59

-It's time to recharge

-and it makes me feel very peaceful.

0:11:000:11:04

-We believe that everything we do

-during Ramadan is more valuable.

0:11:040:11:08

-It's a time

-when we return to Islam...

0:11:090:11:11

-..and rediscover what we

-should be doing all year round.

0:11:110:11:15

-Our family wakes up at about 3.00am.

0:11:170:11:21

-Mam makes food and we all eat.

0:11:210:11:24

-Then we pray and go back to sleep.

0:11:240:11:26

-If there's school, we go to school,

-the same with work.

0:11:270:11:30

-We then return home

-and pray together.

0:11:300:11:33

-We eat and break the fast together.

0:11:330:11:37

-Ramadan is difficult but it gets

-easier as the month progresses.

0:11:390:11:44

-It's difficult at the start

-when you're not used to it.

0:11:440:11:48

-After a few days, it's easier.

0:11:480:11:50

-By the end of the day,

-I don't feel like eating a lot...

0:11:510:11:55

-..because I'm used to not eating.

0:11:550:11:57

-People continue

-with their everyday lives.

0:11:590:12:02

-We don't let it affect our lives.

0:12:020:12:05

-It's just something extra

-that we do during the month.

0:12:050:12:09

-In the future, I hope that more

-Muslims do more for their community.

0:12:100:12:15

-We do a lot now but in the future,

-I believe we'll do even more.

0:12:150:12:19

-Unfortunately, there's too much

-hatred in the world today.

0:16:570:17:02

-I welcome something that helps

0:17:030:17:08

-I hope this Saturday school
