Spiritual directors William A. Barry, SJ, and Bernadette Miles discuss Ignatian spirituality, understandings of Jesus, and spiritual direction in this nine-minute video from Spiritual Directors International. Barry is the author of multiple books on Ignatian spirituality, including A Friendship Like No Other and Changed Heart, Changed World.
Thanks for this conversation about spiritual direction. In my particular circumstances and location, I need to speak to someone locally and that is proving a more difficult task than I anticipated. I hope some advice from a spiritual director does happen in the not too distant future.
I have found that Jesuit spirituality is a continual discerning and living out an authentic life…so, I think it can be useful for almost anybody as long as we, as directors, can learn to listen and speak the native language of the person who come.
For me, the best ‘interview / dialogue’ to date.
