Spiritual Thought of the Day 靈修思語 (2010年10月13日)

Attended Day of Recollection for Priests this morning. Came away with these spiritual thoughts:

  • Lukewarmness is a spiritual sickness (decrease from hotness and coldness spiritually).
  • One of the main causes is desire to save one’s soul with minimum efforts.
  • Fostering a serious life of piety with emphases  on devotion to Our Lady is great remedy against lukewarmness.
  • Self-denial is very important. Do not long for compensation here on earth.
  • Our heart is meant to be filled with God, not with things.
  • “The world” (worldly attitudes) is a big enemy for spiritual life.
