Why do churches cover the cross during Lent?

Usually, the cross is not covered except on Good Friday and then it is slowly uncovered for the adoration of the cross. In the pre-Vatican II church it was common practice to cover all statues in the church during Lent. Some churches still observe this today. Lent is meant to be a time of penance and deprivation. Covering the statues and allowing for little or no adornment of the church helps us focus on the coming passion and death of Our Lord. The Easter Vigil Mass marks the end of Lent and celebrates the glorious resurrection of Our Lord and the church is once more decorated in spectacular fashion.

No meat on Friday but can eat fish?

Yes, that's right. The Roman Catholic rule of abstinence from meat on Fridays used to be for every Friday, all year, every year. Fish has always been ok on Fridays. I believe the Friday abstinence changed at the time of Vatican II, so that it is only in force during Lent

Around 1965. It was never a "Rule' as we know it, it was more or less a sacrifice that was adopted by Catholics it was discontinued in the early sixties as a requirement, however, even to this day very devout Catholics still practice it. Vatican II did, however, say that Catholics should give something else up of equivalence if they do not give up meat on Fridays not in Lent. During Lent, meat should still be given up on Fridays.
