A lukewarm Christian is somehow ‘inside out’; his is a soul that has ‘grown weary’ in its endeavor to improve.  Christ has faded from the horizon of his life.  The soul descries God, if it sees him at all, as a remote and distant figure, hazy and indistinct, with ill-defined features, and probably indifferent to him.  No longer does he perform positive acts of generosity as he formerly did: he is now prepared to settle for much less.   –Francis Fernandez (In Conversation with God)
