There aren’t any boys climbing the mountains to pick edelweiss for their sweethearts. There aren’t any boys singing “Annie Laurie,” nor any Annies for them to sing to.Vesalius, Descartes, Harvey, Erasmus, Darwin, etc.) "Magnetic" spirits were employed by Mesmer in his theory in very much the same way as modern Spiritists invoke the "ether" of the physicists.In Psychology, "spirit" is used (with the adjective "spiritual") to denote all that belongs to our higher life of reason, art, morality, and religion as contrasted with the life of mere sense-perception and passion.They are the heralds who announce his commands, and often too the ministers who execute His justice.They take a benevolent interest in the spiritual good of men ( Luke ).

They need not rely upon the ministrations of a secular and soul-withering state.

They themselves make a society within the larger society.

We wouldn’t have them read articles proving the superiority of a way of life they cannot imagine. For the problem is bigger than that, or more fundamental. It isn’t enough that no one prevent them from going outdoors, just as it isn’t enough right now that no one prevents our young people from holding hands, delighting in the company of the opposite sex, courting, and marrying. Dancing, I know, is another one of those games that used to be passed along by the young to the young, but that’s long ceased to be the case. Where can our young people go to have innocent fun, not just alongside the other sex, but specifically for mingling with them, meeting them, flirting with them, searching for one of them to love? I’m deeply interested in theology, but most people aren’t.

Now all we’re left with are the epileptic jerks of disconnected “partners” on a strobe-lit stage, all conversation made impossible by noise from hell, or the embarrassing slow-dancing, which you can hardly engage in with somebody you are only beginning to get to know. They used to sponsor basketball games, for both the players and the people who’d be in the stands cheering them. Where are we nudging them gently along toward marriage and the sweetness of that life? The “theology” they drink in comes from Mass, from prayer, and from—note this well! It comes from learning to love someone forever, under the canopy of the Church; it comes from the vow at the altar, and the child in the cradle, and the daily charities and forbearance of married life, life in a real and precious society.

Paul's language about the spiritual and the carnal man and his enumeration of the three elements, spirit, soul, and body, which gave occasion to the error of the Trichotomists ( 1 Thessalonians , Ephesians ).

Matter has generally been conceived as in one sense or another the limitation of spirit.

But such conceptions demand the recognition of individual personality as an ultimate fact. In the New Testament, it signifies sometimes the soul of man (generally its highest part, e.g., "the spirit is willing"), sometimes the supernatural action of God in man, sometimes the Holy Ghost ("the Spirit of Truth Whom the world cannot receive").
