Homily / Don't be discouraged. Even though you are limping along, even if progress seems to be slow, take courage. You are on the right path; you will get there.
In the spiritual life we have to keep growing. Here are St. Teresa of Avila's three conditions for continued growth.
- Never give up the habitual practice of prayer.
- Further detachment from everything.
- Seeking greater solitude. The closer we get to God the more we need to be alone with him.
