Friends, at the heart of what St. Ignatius of Loyola teaches in the “Spiritual Exercises” is the idea of detachment. If we are to do the will of God, then we have to become detached from the worldly goods to which we are addicted. A basic principle of this detachment is “agere contra,” which is Latin simply for “to act against.” The idea is simple: if you are attached or addicted to some worldly good, then the best thing is to act against it—to press, aggressively even, in the opposite direction.

Thank you Father.
Jesus spoke at length about the dangers of attachment. There are a lot of people who refuse to cross over and go into the light one of the reasons are that they are attached to material and fleshy desires and loved ones or pets. Other people refuse to go into the light after the body has died because they were lovers of the good life, jet setting and cruising to multiple countries to sightsee and spend up big. Jesus traveled by foot and he conducted his mission within a wide perimeter. He manly stayed on the coast line of Galilee and the Jordan region. He owned one pair of sandals, One tunic, one robe. Jesus said whoever loves their life will lose it. Jesus said who ever loves sister, brother, mother, father more than me is not worthy to be my Disciple. And than there are people who on the moment of death see the white tunnel or light and either don’t know what it is or they are terrified of the judgment. Not being attached also means that you must detach from hatred,lust gluttony, resentment, living in the past . Judging and being particular about befriending certain people and rejecting others , gossip and lies are all attachments as well and you have to rid yourselves of all of these in order to come home to God and if that means that you have to take great steps and great sacrifices to rid yourself of these hideous attachments and become a hermit for the sake of the kingdom of heaven than do it. Many are on the easy road but very few are on the narrow one if any. So love God with your whole mind body and soul and help
everyone and every creature that needs your help
Kindness and care. There is nothing hidden that God dose not see.🌟
Nice things like u? This guy is telling everyone that u will have to live on less— while his elite friends fly around in private jets. I see who u serve. This guy hangs around with super rich.
Pure evil. Go back to Santa Monica and your Mercedes Benz. Roman Catholic Church systematically sexual abused tens of thousands of children and covered it up. I believe in Jesus Christ—- BUT NOT YOU!
this is buddhism
A spiritual gift, this agere contra is clear and helpful way to reverse the bad patterns of our lives. Bishop Barron's explanation is clear, persuasive, eternally memorable. What do you want to get rid of in your behavior? Do the complete opposite, until you can rebound to a spiritually "happy medium." Sound advice that your spiritual life depends on? Thanks, Bishop Bob!
So they're making a film about St. Ignatius of Loyola. I wonder when they're going to make a movie about the burning of the Jews.
Nice 👍🏻 thanks Bishop for bringing us a pleasant history of Saint Ignacio Lopez or Saint Ignatius Loyola…
Thank you for the lovely sermon, Bishop Barron!
Friends. He acts like he works at Disney
Excellent and edifying
Thank you Bishop Barron. But first, thank God ;)
Hey, Bp. Barron, you hit the nail on the head, the ball outa the park! Thank you for unveiling two of the most pressing issues of our day, our Attachments and Addictions. Do you know Fr. Philippe? He writes marvelously on this subject of how to be separated from the world and enjoy this life as Jesus teaches us in theGospels.
Detachment from the “stuff” of the world fills our short lives with more desire for more. Freedom is found in giving it away and making ourselves smaller in the big picture of having a more abundant life. (John 10:10)
This is the best sermon on detachment and the why that I have ever heard. Thank you, Bishop Barron.
"Take the lowest place, it's much more fun."
My husband and I work hard but live simply. It’s very relaxing because we don’t worry about keeping up.
