A Lukewarm Soul Is Still Alive, but It Is Not Capable of Doing Anything to Gain Heaven

A lukewarm soul is not yet quite dead in the eyes of God because the faith, the hope, and the charity which are its spiritual life are not altogether extinct. But it is a faith without zeal, a hope without resolution, a charity without ardor... Nothing touches this soul: it hears the word of God, yes, that is true; but often it just bores it... Its boredom is so great, that this poor unfortunate thing is almost in agony. It is still alive, but it is not capable of doing anything to gain Heaven.
