Detachment from the ways of the world


In today’s society we are told that in order to have a successful life we must accept what the world has to offer, whether it be attachment to material things (possessions) or sinful behavior (or both). How often are we told that in order to be happy we must have a huge amount of money in our bank accounts? How often are we told by society that we must give into impurities through the way we speak, dress, think, and even act?

"You only live once, so why not party and live life the way you want? God will not condemn you, if there even is one. A loving God wouldn’t send anybody to an Eternal Hell fire, if it even exists since not many people go there." These are just a small portion of examples that we hear from the modern culture, and sadly many people, including the youth, have been convinced that happiness is found in temporary things. They have sadly been misled just like a fish who has been tricked into thinking that the bait on the fisherman’s pole was actually its prey, later finding out that it was only the path to eternal death.

As a result of our souls’ attachment to original sin that has come into the world through Adam and Eve, our very human nature was weakened which explains why death was later brought into the world, thus the temptation to find pleasure in worldly things to comfort oneself into thinking that we must live life in such a fashion that is sinful since "we will only live once."

In order to overcome these temptations, especially attachment to materialism that was condemned by His Holiness Pope Pius IX at Vatican I, we must be open to GOD’S COMMAND to detach ourselves from this world. So what is meant by "the world"?

SAINT JOHN EUDES states the following:
"When I say 'the world' I mean the corrupt and disordered life led in the world, the damnable spirit that reigns over the world, the perverse sentiments and inclinations which men of the world follow, and the pernicious laws and maxims by which they govern their behavior." The Saint continues "By the things of the world I mean everything that the world so highly values and loves and strives after, namely, the honors and praises of men, vain pleasures and satisfactions, wealth, and temporal comforts, friendships and affections based on flesh and blood, on self-love and selfish interests."

So why is detachment from the world something that the average Christian must strive for, you may ask? This is because of the fact that in order to achieve Salvation we must take the infallible words of OUR LORD to heart when He states:

"Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)

Without seeking GOD’S KINGDOM how is it possible to be saved from eternal damnation in Hell? Yes, my dear brothers and sisters, we do live in this world, but we are not to submit to it, for this world has denied CHRIST and His Salvation for all men as a result of being under the influence of satan, the father of lies and deception.

We cannot deny the fact that this world has and continues to persecute CHRIST’S CHURCH, offends GOD by sin, and even led our LORD to the CRUCIFIXION after constantly abusing Him.

Let us, therefore, seek first the KINGDOM OF GOD! Let us not waste our time! Let us work out our Salvation through fear and trembling for the Love of CHRIST and HIS SACRED HEART!

"And be not conformed to this world; but be reformed in the newness of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and the acceptable, and the perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2)

Last Judgement Triptych by Hieronymus Bosch; 1504-08; Akademie der bildenden Künste, Vienna, Austria; http://www.wga.hu
 
 
"The Christian life is a continuation and completion of the life of Christ in us.
We should be so many Christs here on earth, continuing His life and His works,
laboring and suffering in a holy and divine manner in the spirit of Jesus."
 
 
 
 
"The Sacraments are so many inexhaustible fountains of grace and holiness, which have their source in the immense ocean of the SACRED HEART of our Savior; they are so many flames of the Divine furnace from which proceed all spiritual blessings. Yet the brightest of those flames is the HOLY EUCHARIST."
 
 
 
"The air we breathe, the bread that sustains us, the heart which throbs in our bosoms, are not more necessary for a man that he may live as a human being, than is prayer for the Christian that he may live as a Christian."
 
 
 
"With all my power, I urge every one of you who read these words, and in God’s Name I adjure you, since our dear Jesus has shown a great desire to be with you: do not deprive Him of His satisfaction, but learn by your own experience that like Holy Wisdom, His Conversation has no bitterness, nor His Company any tediousness, but Joy and Gladness."

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

Padre Nuestro,

No nos dejes caer en la tentación,

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

Pero de ti procede el perdón,

Aguarda Israel al Señor.
