From Distraction to Dedication

Posted on July 12, 2022 by Published by

In celebration of the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, join us for an IVC Morning of Reflection 2022 

But Few Things Are Needed:
From Distraction to Dedication
led by Fr. Joseph Simmons, SJ

In this talk, Fr. Joe Simmons discusses a sketched out, but never-written, letter by Father Adolfo Nicolás, SJ, former superior general of the Society of Jesus. Fr. Simmons will trace out some of Nicolás’s nuanced observations: how ‘distraction in prayer’ is part of a more general “distraction in life”; how even noble causes can become temptations when totalized; how ego and perfectionism distract; and how social media and marketing have stolen our attention.
