CHRISTIAN LENT - SPIRITUAL AND MORAL VALUE FOR PERSONAL HEALTH AND LIFE (on the basis of the sociological survey results

Vasyl Ruden

Abstract


The results of study acquired in accordance with the developed sociological program “Man’s opinion of a Christian Lent (CL) as a spiritual and moral mean of a healthy way of life” convincingly testify that the CL is a verified mean for overcoming the Man’s own limitedness in stereotypes of own life.
Besides, 81.4% of respondents consider the CL to be a remarkable health-improving mean for the body and the humility example for the spirit. At the same time, 94.73±1.66% respondents consider the CL as a spiritual mean for the human body able to correct the worldview on a current healthy way of life. 3.26±0.96% expressed the idea of its health-improving effect on the body and the soul through observance of rules of healthy living by the Man.
All of this makes us think that the CL should be considered as an unused spiritual and moral reserve of public health in the independent Ukraine in the process of developing the basis of a healthy lifestyle. This will allow to strengthen spirituality and health, prolong life, improve social, economic and cultural level of the secularized society.
