The Spiritual Life

What is distinctive about the spiritual life today? Basically, the spiritual life is the same as it ever was. It means now what is meant in the time of Saint Paul, namely, a responsiveness to the Spirit of God. Those who are more responsive are more holy. Those who are less responsive are less holy. Those who are unresponsive are unholy.

~ Father John A. Hardon, S.J.
