Our mind is shaped by the liturgy--literally. We call it formation.
The science of neuroplasticity provides evidence that we can intentionally change our brains, regardless of our age. Stroke victims can re-establish limb control. Athletes can improve technique through visualization. Addicts can learn to live without their addiction, one day at a time. How? By utilizing visualization, imagination, meditation, and repitition to form new neuropathways.
These are all tools used by the Church in Christian formation, to reshape how we think, percieve, and interpret what we experience in the world. Perhaps that is precisely what the Apostle Paul meant when he instructed believers to "be transformed by the renewing of your mind" in Romans 12:2. Listen to learn more at www.QCAradio.com.
