How frequently do we set any spiritual goals? Are we successful in keeping those commitments?
If you have made a commitment to pray each day, are you living up to it? How frequently and fervently do you spend time with the Sacred Scriptures? Do you participate in the sacramental life of the Church with full, conscious, and active participation?
I think each of us can ask ourselves a very simple question today: "Am I making progress in my spiritual quest or am I simply making excuses?" If we are going to respond effectively to God's call to holiness, we need to cooperate with God's grace. What are the steps we need to take to be open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in our lives?
