Such pious, religious and spiritual practices have helped people to focus on living a holy life of virtue and sanctity in imitation of Christ, of Our Blessed Mother, of their patron Saint(s), and to be mindful of how Christ teaches us to be in the world but not of the world.
Many of these Spiritual helps are popular, not only because people can see how they have "worked" for them in their own personal lives, but also because they give those who perform these various devotions a kind of "foretaste", so to speak, of Heaven itself!
The Catholic Church,
as a loving, kind, and merciful Mother, has carefully approved of a number
of them to help Catholics in this life, and even some in the next life,
e.g. that those who die wearing the Brown Scapular will not go to Hell,
and who, on the first Saturday after their death, will be taken to Heaven
if they have the misfortune to end up in Purgatory. In this sense
certain Catholic Devotions are like Eternal Life Insurance!
