Re: Pilates exercies (8/29) Linda Friday, November 16, 2007


Dear Bro. Ignatius;

There is a program offered in the local Girls Inc. (club for girls) that is called "Yogalates". It says it is a traditional yoga and pilates class. Now I know the dangers of doing yoga and I read up on how Pilates excercise got started. While the start of the pilates exercise was innocent others have merged it with Yoga. Unfortunately, I did a few pilates exercise awhile ago without knowing of the Yoga connection. I wrote to you before asking if I had opened myself up to the occult. (on 8/29, in this forum) You didn't think so at the time but you always say that "playing in the devil's sandbox can the devil's sand in your shoes".

I was wondering if I should mention it in my next confession as I don't want any part in the occult even if I did something unknowingly and as I am on a prayer team to pray for others.

Question Answered by Bro. Ignatius Mary, OLSM

Dear Linda:

When in doubt -- confess.

The Sacrament of Confession is also a healing Sacrament. If you feel this involvement caused even a venial wound, then confessing it will heal that wound.

I would also recommend the Renunciation Prayer and Re-Claiming Ground found in our Spiritual Warfare Catalog

We will be praying for you in your task to pray for others. I applaud you in your concern to be squeaky clean on this as preparation for your apostolate of intercessory prayer. That is wise thinking.

God Bless,
Bro. Ignatius Mary
