Thoughts for the Week - Fr R Taouk

Signs By Which We May Recognise Our Disordered Attachments
by Fr. Anselm Longpre

"Make not provision for the flesh in its concupiscences"
Rom. 13:14

1. Fear of getting tired, of becoming sick, of doing too much, of dying.
 
2. Preoccupation about one's body: Food, clothing, rest, comforts, pleasures, satisfactions.
 
3. To seek out that which delights the taste buds, sight, the ear, the senses of smell and touch:  Exquisite food, liqueurs, delicacies, music, perfumes, etc.
 
4. A constant effort to obtain that which is most comfortable in one's living.
 
5. Laziness, wasting time, little application at work.
 
6. Immodesty in looks, in touch, in one's bearing and in encounters with others.
 
7. Complacency in certain delectations that one would like to have, without however, going beyond certain limits.
 
8. Disordered familiarities with others.
 
9. Rest, sleep, recreations, days off, vacations etc. that are sought out and prolonged longer than is really necessary.
 
10. The fear of the least suffering, the least privation.
 
11. Annoyance and discontent when the body is deprived of something.
 
12. Murmuring and sadness in sickness or in poverty.

Renounce the cult of the body. Remove any exterior adornment which is worldly; avoiding what is luxurious, effeminate.

Apply yourself to practice conscientiously the most perfect chastity. Keep modesty, in looks, in hearing, in conversations. Fight all sensuality in senses of sight, bearing and touch.

Rise promptly and early in the morning.

Do not eat between meals unless there is a good reason, and be happy with what is served, never complaining.

Take necessary recreations but avoid idleness.

Work without respite until your strength is exhausted, always taking into account the rules of prudence.

Avoid abuse in the use of radio, newspapers, internet, media, etc.

Do not complain about the weather, tiredness, sickness, discomfort, infirmities, sleeplessness, etc.

Impose upon yourself voluntarily some light penances, especially when afflicted by temptations of the flesh.

Practice fasting and abstinence as required by the Church.
