Homily / If we know the Lord has called us to union with him it helps to establish a rule of life. We each have to come up with our own, unique rule of life.
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.
