“Spiritus contra Spiritum” was the wisdom that Dr. Carl Jung gave to Bill Wilson, one of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, in 1961.

“‘Spiritum’ in Latin is the word for alcohol, whereas ‘Spiritus’ is the Latin word for a high, godly spiritual experience. Therefore, ‘Spiritus contra Spiritum’ means that high spirit can fight low spirit,” retreat director Nina Marie Corona explained to about 50 people gathered Feb. 16 in St. Aloysius Church, Jackson.
