Theology and superstition ideas by Francisco Marques: In a society dominated by science and technology, there is a very strong growth in superstitious concepts. The distancing from the Truth tricks the man to seek to respond to his eternal restlessness. In this book, the author Francisco Marques reflects on the existence of superstition in our lives, helping the reader to individualise and move away from all that is dangerous to his spiritual life, and proposes a path of growth and a passage to true devotion, which leads to true peace, freedom and happiness. Issues such as: Human Religiosity; The “New Age”; The Occult; Holistic Therapies; Freedom from Superstition; and much more. (Includes an Incredible Testimony) are addressed.
I use the Scriptural Stations of the Cross, which follows the walk of Jesus to Calvary. This has made my reflections and prayers come more alive because my body walks from Station to Station and my focus becomes engaged in His, carrying our sins, our wounds, our pain to an ultimate redemption. I also rest in the Psalms, which seem to hold within them all the varied emotions I feel when going through difficult times. I keep the structure of prayer and worship intact, which creates a backbone and consistent support to my day.
You learn about your faith. Things said in the Mass have the ability to open your mind and speak to you. Hearing the Word of God is special and has a lot of meaning to be interpreted. Each Gospel has a story, and homilies come with life lessons. You may even start to incorporate these teachings into your life. It’s an opportunity to grow mentally and spiritually, plus it can be pretty interesting. Certainly many churchgoers struggle with behaviors they would like to change, but on average, regular church attendees drink less, smoke less, use fewer recreational drugs and are less sexually promiscuous than others. The church offers guidance and acceptance, reconciliation and everlasting love. Whatever you are going through, the church can help you through it.
