Rituals - eventually obscure true religion

Daily Meditation:  Tuesday, November 23, 2010

So many people have a distorted vision of the universe, because they look at it through the lens of a single religion! But what, then, is the point of their belonging to a religion, if it is going to obscure both the splendour of what God has created and the possibility of returning to him? The Church has warped people's minds to such an extent that, now, they can no longer be made to appreciate the wonders of creation. What they themselves have created - holy images, relics, cathedrals, pilgrimages - yes, these they can appreciate, but when it comes to what God created they are not interested. Of course, that is not how they put it, but in practice it is how they behave. Instead of saying, 'Respect life, my children, for everything is sacred; there are talismans all around you, placed there by God: give him thanks for the light of the sun and the stars, for air, for water, for everything nature gives us,' all that matters to the Church are its shops, with their ceremonial objects, rosaries and medallions; the rest of the universe does not count. And that is how the rituals instituted by the Churches have come to obscure true religion.
