A friend of mine recently told me how much he had benefited from working with a spiritual director. He thanked me for suggesting he do it. I don’t remember when I made that suggestion, but that’s not surprising. I recommend spiritual direction to many of my friends.
So thought I would do it here. Spiritual direction has done me a lot of good, and I know many people who say the same thing. Spiritual direction isn’t mysterious. In a recent article in the Boston Globe, the Jesuit William Barry said he talks to people about what happens when they are aware of God, “and we just talk about that and see what the next step is, where that relationship with God seems to be moving.”
