“Persons who have a dull and dreamy mind have their eyes open, appear very thoughtful and, it seems, attentive, but they are really oblivious to what is going on. It is the same with those whose faith is dormant: they believe all the mysteries in general, but ask them what they understand about them and they know nothing.” St. Francis
