Reply To: Are there elements of ancient and/or modern Near Eastern Christianity that are present in your own church/faith life? If so, what are they? If not, would you be open to implementing any?

Hi Grace,

I agree that it is very cool (and also important) that the East has emphasized using their senses in conducting their worship. As a person who has been drawn to Catholicism, I have always wanted to get into this more sense-based liturgical living, especially through such methods as having a veneration of iconography, as well as through having an appreciation for the relics of those saints who have gone before us. I think these practices would help myself and others to develop a more grounded faith.
