Sun Worship Rituals

Sun worship is still alive and well in the 21st century. Many of the customs from pagan sun worship rituals are still practiced today. Most religions have these sun worship customs or rituals, including the Roman Catholic Church. Seen as a Christian religion by the secular world, Catholicism is actually based on paganism and although its symbols and customs have been "Christianized," they are not supported by the Bible.
