What is The Labyrinth?
Should Catholics “pray” in a Labyrinth?
True Labyrinths are made with sand, stones or crystals. They have a single circular path which leads to the center. The circle of the Labyrinth is designed deliberately to attract “positive energy” to the participant.
As Catholics, we do not call upon “energy”.
There are only three kinds of spirits:
- The human spirit
- The Holy Spirit
- he demonic spirits
So, if one is calling up “energies” he or she is calling up demonic spirits.
The participant is ideally to drag his feet as he walks around the Labyrinth. As one walks through some sand, in dragging one’s feet, he is to kick up “energy” to attract to himself.
As Catholics, we have many ways to be one with God’s beautiful creation.
Take a walk through your neighborhood, a local forest preserve, around a lake.
Praise the Lord in song. Pray a rosary. Speak to the Lord in the quiet of your heart.
Walk to your local church and give praise to Jesus Christ for waiting for you in His Holy Tabernacle in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Stay away from the Labyrinth.
I bless the LORD who counsels me; even at night my heart exhorts me.
