A ritual is a set of actions taken in a particular way in order to acquire a desired result. Rituals are common throughout the world’s religions. From Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam and all of the Earth based traditions of Paganism.

The theory behind a ritual is that if one follows a series of steps in a succinct kind of way, something will be accomplished which will meet the specifications of the practitioners.

In Catholicism, the ritual of a Catholic Mass is done every single day in order to unite the practitioners with the body and blood of Christ so that they may be blessed.
