patron saints are those saints who like specialize in some kind of BS. ie sts cosmas and damian are patron saints of hairstyles and hairdressers
ancient pagan gods and goddesses of thinks like fertility, crops, military etc etc etc
then you have catholics who PRAY to patron saints… just like people way back when prayed to certain gods and goddesses for help in a certain area
how are they different?

  1. There is some difference. The concept of saints is different from the concept of God. Saints are more like mediators.
    It isn’t much of a surprise, because more Christianity comes from Paganism than from Judaism.
    The trinity concept– that is Pagan, totally against Judaism
    Jesus– the sacrificial king myth (Pagan)
    That the messiah would be God is against Judaism, but is part of Paganism
    The whole concept of hell is taken from Paganism.
    Why pick on Catholics when all of Christianity has been heavily influenced by Pagan themes and motifs?
    And how is fertility crap when without a fertile Earth to grow food nothing would be living on it?

  2. I don’t see how fertility is “stupid crap”…unless you regret being born, and if that’s the case, I feel sorry for you. If your parents weren’t fertile (naturally or artificially so), you would not have been conceived. But thank you for pointing out the hypocrisy of Catholics who pray to their saints and call our gods demons at the same time (not all Catholics…just those who actually do this).
    Venus Bless (one of those goddesses of that stupid crap called fertility)

  3. because we don’t believe the saints are Gods. When we pray to saints, we ask them to pray for us. “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Matt 18:20
    So instead of just me praying, I also have the prayers of saints with me. There is power in prayer my friend.
    In Revelation 5:8, the bible tells us that the prayers of those saints will be answered by God,”And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.”

  4. Patron Saints are not Gods and Godesses. They are just people who other people believe were granted speial grace by God.

Meditation and Labyrinths

Some people confuse labyrinths with mazes, but it's not a maze. It is more of a meditation that is in walking form. Let me explain. The labyrinth has a pathway that you walk in order to reach the center but it goes round and round, back and forth, until you reach the center. The key is to take slow steps and just walk towards the center; taking your time and following your breath.

Osho Devavani Meditation

Devavani means "divine voice," the energy of existence which moves through the meditator, who becomes an empty channel of expression. If done in the evening, it deeply relaxes the mind and creates a profound sleep and inner peace.Devavani meditation lasts for one hour. There are four stages of 15 minutes each. Keep your eyes closed throughout.
