Pernicious schizophrenia

From: Ignatius the Theologian, Ch. 5 "The application of the Senses"

"A Christian person, in the full sense of what Ignatius was aiming at in the Spiritual Exercises, is one who has overcome the pernicious schizophrenia between soul and body, brain and heart, and thus become fully reintegrated--one who by means of prayer and assimilation to the incarnate Word has put right the 'ill-ordered attachments' of his soul and 'set his life in order'."

--Hugo Rahner, SJ
