Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil.
When we read Scripture, we need to learn to stay on the same subject with God—to respond to what He has said, rather than changing the subject and praying about something else—stay on topic so you can hear all that God has to say. And then I whip out my laundry list of prayer requests and I am of praying for Aunt Gertrude—(which by the way is a great thing to do, but that’s not my point). God is gracious and will keep listening to me…but what have I missed by not staying on topic with what God had to say? Through meditation we learn that the words Christ speaks to us “are full of the Spirit and life” (John 6:33). Like cold mountain water, rushing over rocks on a hot, humid day, the word afresh is something I could use a lot more of. Explore, practice, express–play with ideas whether or not there is exact opportunity at the moment. Be observant–watch for inspiration in new things you learn, books you read, pictures you take, experiences you enjoy. Remember that we are called and gifted by grace, ultimately it is His work in us that will last. This summer, open the window of your soul and let the fresh breeze of God’s Spirit, His word, and His blessing blow through and ignite your heart to burn brightly as we continue to shine in the light of His glory.
It can be so easy to fall out of the rhythm of truly listening for His voice, even in the midst of serving God. November 27, 2011 - London Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil. He went to graduate school at Boston College, became a social worker, got married, raised four children, got elected to the Clinton Board of Selectmen and over the past years, has watched three wars unfold on his television screen. We long to hear from God, but sometimes lack confidence that God will speak personally to us. Too often, we are more focused on information and performance [doing what good Christians are supposed to do].


His words went in one ear and right out the other with barely a stop in the grey matter between.
Freshness helps dissipate weariness, providing energy move forward as well as  stirring up creativity to receive the groundwork for new plans.
When we take the responsibility of making things happen on ourselves, it is easy to get off track. As a military wife and mom of three, I encourage women to love God, embrace truth, and enjoy life. Father Gabriel Amorth, who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms in the past 25 years after being appointed by the late Pope John Paul II, surprised delegates at a conference by revealing his dislike for yoga and 'Harry Potter'.
Dziokonski, who was a Navy corpsman assigned to a Marine Corps rifle company in Vietnam and a recipient of two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with a Combat "V," considers himself a strong man, a self-described curmudgeon. So when he found himself at the top of a mountain crying over a dead butterfly, he knew he needed help.
Journaling meditation stands on the watchtower, ready and waiting to see what God will say. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
And he found relief and release in a yoga program designed specifically for war veterans called Yoga Warriors International. Cimini, the founding director of Central Mass Yoga and Wellness in West Boylston, designed to alleviate the symptoms of combat stress or post-traumatic stress disorder. Speaking on the subject of People And Religion at a fringe event at the Umbria Film Festival in Terni, Father Amorth spoke of his distaste for JK Rowling's young wizard. In Harry Potter the Devil is at work in a cunning and crafty way, he is using his extraordinary powers of magic and evil," he said. He studies each and everyone of us and our tendencies towards good and evil and then he tempts us.
With PTSD, your emotions are ruled by what happened 20 or 30 years ago." Dziokonski originally took yoga to gain more flexibility.


As he practiced yoga, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were unfolding a world away, but were hitting close to home for Dziokonski.
This is not the first time that the 85-year-old has raised eyebrows with his forthright views, as last year he had said that the ongoing child sex scandals rocking the Catholic Church were evidence that "the Devil was at work in the Vatican". The war was in our living room," Dziokonski said, recalling the firefights that were being broadcast on the nightly news. In fact, Dziokonski had asked her to teach a class at the Worcester Veterans Center, which fellow veterans later decided to continue. In addition, she is the co-author of a study that will appear in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, "The Effects of Sensory Enhanced Hatha Yoga on Symptoms of Combat Stress in Deployed Military Personnel." The study was done by Maj. Jon Greuel, an Air Force instructor pilot, in Kirkuk, Iraq, from November 2008 to November 2009 in collaboration with Cimini. She is also working with Worcester State University to study the effect of the Yoga Warrior program on military students at the university. Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn is one of the local studios offering the Yoga Warriors class with a certified instructor.
Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn began offering a Yoga Warriors class in September, and is open to all veterans and active-duty military personnel. Dziokonski, who regularly attends a Thursday morning Yoga Warriors session, said yoga has returned to him a sense of calm, and has improved his sleep.
Many Vietnam veterans are enrolled in Yoga Warriors, and also some World War II veterans, and now Iraq War veterans.
Dziokonski and Cimini said the emotional impact the war has on returning veterans may not become evident until months or years later.
