Detachment has a bad press sometimes. We are all urged to be so attached: involved, empathic, huggy, kissy etc.
However, if you are attached to a lump of concrete, hurtling towards the ocean’s bottom, then urgent detachment suddenly looks like a very good option indeed, dontchathink?
Here’s the bottom line:
Catholics must detach themselves from the world, the flesh, and the devil, to save their lives,
and attach themselves to the Church, the Life in Christ, and the Holy Trinity, instead.
