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?
