    Quote
    A new study from Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health finds that kids and teens who are raised with religious or spiritual practices tend to have better health and mental health as they age. But not to worry if you’re not a service-attender. The research, published last week in the American Journal of Epidemiology, finds that people who prayed or meditated on their own time also reaped similar benefits, including lower risk of substance abuse and depression later on.

    The team looked at data from 5,000 people taking part in the long-term Nurses' Health Study II and its next generation Growing Up Today Study (GUTS). They were interested in whether the frequency with which a child/teen attended religious services with their parents or prayed/meditated on their own was correlated with their health and mental health as they grew into their 20s. The young people were followed for anywhere from eight to 14 years.  ...
    Lord have mercy.

  • Masonry, New Age religions, the Occult, Buddhism, Yoga.... are all part of the "religions" Forbes is talking about. Catholicism is just one of thousands of religions to Forbes.

    Unfortunately true! Just look at the picture. Obviously the boy and his dad are using yoga or some type of Eastern meditation.
    And sadly, Thomas Merton encouraged the practice of Eastern meditation. I listened to one of his taped retreat series for religious. It was awful. Even on a hot summer day, I felt cold when he spoke, like a demonic chill had taken over the monastery. It was shortly after that retreat that I left the monastery for I could tell that it was falling into New Age stuff like a lot of convents within Los Angeles under the now retired and disgraced Cardinal Mahony.
    Lord have mercy.
