    Resumo
    Vivemos num tempo em que o stress se tornou uma das palavras mais comuns no vocabulário dos sujeitos e em que as pessoas são confrontadas diariamente com situações que desafiam os seus processos adaptativos. O estudo da resiliência, como um processo que permite um confronto positivo com a adversidade, assume importância crescente. Um conjunto de pesquisas mais recentes trazem para esta discussão a dimensão espiritual, reconhecendo o papel que uma relação estabelecida com o Sagrado pode desempenhar no ajustamento saudável à crise. Foi realizado um estudo transversal com 1118 indivíduos e verificou-se que, mais do que indicadores gerais de religiosidade, são variáveis com um teor relacional mais íntimo com o divino, como o uso de estratégias de coping religioso e espiritual positivas, uma imagem benevolente de Deus e a satisfação com a vida espiritual que aparecem como facilitadores mais evidentes dos processos adaptativos.

    Palabras clave: Resiliência, espiritualidade, bem-estar espiritual, coping religioso, imagem de Deus.

    RESILIENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
    When Faith becomes shelter


    Abstract
    We live in a time when stress has become one of the most common words in subjects' vocabulary, and people are confronted daily with situations that challenge their adaptive processes. The study of resilience, as a process that allows a positive confrontation with adversity, assumes growing importance. A more recent set of research brings to this discussion the spiritual dimension, recognizing the role that an established relationship with the Sacred can play in the healthy adjustment to the crisis. A cross-sectional study was conducted with 1118 individuals and it was found that, rather than general indicators of religiosity, they are variables with a more intimate relational content with the divine, such as the use of positive religious and spiritual coping strategies, a benevolent image of God and the satisfaction with the spiritual life that appear as more evident facilitators of the adaptive processes.

    Keywords: Resilience, spirituality, spiritual well-being, religious coping, God's image.
