Quote by Walter A. Jensen : “Ritual is a habit andor”

Ritual is a habit and/or a compulsion that at least fulfills one of the following functions: (1) to give worship to a particular divine agent; (2) to invoke remembrance of either a past or future religious event; and/or (3) a pseudo-technology that is used to control or change the believer’s environment.Sociology of religion: A critical primer(2015; 9780970491923; pg.101) – Walter A.
