We are certainly very clear about God‘s Will, our holiness. In fact, we thought Religious life is the path to holiness. Over the years after the fervent Novitiate period and First Profession we have to admit that the desire to be holy fades for some reason and we get trapped into a routine of practices of piety that we relish no more and get lost in ambitions and achievements mistaking them for apostolate or God’s Will.
Care to reflect on this diagnosis! We are victims of “AIDS”, a spiritual desease that eats into our spiritual life and weakens our religious motivations and resolves to grow in holiness.
AIDS stand for Acquires Indifference, Delay Syndrome. When we allow indifference and delay to enter our actions and attitudes, the growth in holiness ceases and instead threatens our very Vocation.
