Is the end of Lent Season which is Easter only enjoying Choclate Eggs, or is it revelling in the resurrection of Christ or a Bunny? Sunny Fernandes

As the Season of Lent begins, due to my limitation of knowledge of my religion, and even more limited in my practice, I am cobwebbed in confusion

Should I go for Mass and smear my forehead with ash that marks a sign of the cross, or should I try to reach out to lives and lighten the cross of challenges in their lives or help whose lives are reduced to ashes.

Then what I see is many displaying the ash on the heads, so I guess that is what I should do

Should I give up something bad, wrong in me during Lent or should I give it up forever. Is Lent a season for a change or is it a reason for a change in my life. Some give up alcohol and certain food and binge on Easter. If this is so I give up the bad in me for this Season, give up alcohol, etc and binge on Easter Sunday, which is more a Feaster Sunday.

Is the Season of Lent that culminates in the Holy Week a rituals of external display of religious worship only, or should it be reaching out and resurrecting people out of poverty, hunger and pain.

Should I be fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday or should I be feeding the hungry?

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
