Pope: the culture of economic wellbeing and attraction towards the provisional prevent us from following Jesus

Pope: the culture of economic wellbeing and attraction towards the provisional prevent us from following Jesus
In order to follow Jesus we must get rid of our culture based on economic well being and of our attraction for the provisional. 


"I may desire the creatures over which I should have dominion into two categories.

1. Internal creatures: My passions, inclinations, ideals and talents.
  1. Spiritual; prayer sermons, lectures, meditation, Mass, retreats.
  2. Intellectual; study, novels, papers, sciences.
  3. Arts; music, painting etc..
  4. Bodily; food, sleep, drink, pleasure, pain, recreation, games all that develop the body.
  5. Social; classmates, strangers, neighbors, relations, superiors.

All these things help in the salvation of my soul." (Fr Norris spiritual diary.)
