In a fun, fast-paced and insightful conversation with Fr. Gabriel Rochelle, we touch on a great many considerations about "Ritual". Through an exploration spawned by a couple of columns Fr. Gabriel recently penned on the topic - for the Las Cruces Bulletin - we race across a sea of considerations. Topics include: Religion-History-Consciousness-Initiation-Rites of Passage-Prayer-Social Order - and much, much more. A thoughtful and thought-provoking look at ritual, what it means to humans, why and how we practice ritual and what it brings to our individual lives and collective cultures.

A fun and rollicking, reverent and irreverent romp through the realms of prayer. Today, Randy and Jack Turney explore the practice of prayer and how it works in our culture, in relationship to religions and everyday human life. We touch on the comparisons between prayer, contemplation, and meditation, religious or otherwise. Jack approaches the concept of prayer from a Catholic perspective, and Randy, from an Agnostic point of view. We explore how humans pray and why. We take a multi-dimensional look at different kinds of prayer and how different folks pray in different ways, why, and to what ends.
