Share the Love

Dear Friends,

We have come to the end of our long series on what spiritual direction is NOT, and then finally, what it IS. I would be more than grateful if you would share this featured post on Spiritual Direction with every good Catholic you know, and every Catholic who desires to better understand how to love God and find peace on this troubled planet of ours.

I hope you enjoyed the series. Keep praying for us and helping us reach out to a world that desperately needs to know God's mercy.

Peace to all of you!

    Yes, I will pray for you and your website ministry How to love God and find peace on a troubled planet – troubled because they do not know or love God.

    Yes, that is what any decent person wants from life; NOT a house, car,

    or fancy job title…BUT TO KNOW HIM first and foremost; and in so knowing,

    all other relationships fall in their proper place. Thus we no longer have to be

    someone’s ‘doormat’ or ‘be dependent upon’ or try to control life’s outcome

    for our own benefit. God … THE GOD is THE LORD who provides as I need.

     I love all your posts.  Thanks to the inspiration of this post, I have found a wonderful spiritual director.  She is a Catholic Sister, and understands so much.  I have only been seeing her for a few weeks, but we are working hard on my relationship with God.  Obviously, the problem is not Him, but me.  Thank you so much.  Pray for me.

    • I offered up the Liturgy of the Hours for you this morning.

    I wish to express my sincere thanks for having been part of this unfolding of information regarding spiritual direction. May the Lord continue to bless you and guide you in your work. I would like to continue getting enlightenment on this subject and if possible find a spiritual director to journey with me in my life. Remain blessed in the service of God. What I need is a director please to accompany me….

      It’s Pentecost! I can’t think of a better time to be praying for the gift of the Holy Spirit via a spiritual director. I will add your request to my Mass intentions.

    Great posts, Dan. I’ve been re-reading your book for a second time. Tons of great insights there, and plenty of practical application. Congratulations on such a wonderful book and blog. They have proven to be great tools for this poor sinner in his spiritual journey.

    Was wondering if you’ve ever read “Spiritual Direction in the Early Christian East” by Irenee Hausherr, S.J. and available through Cistercian Publications. I just received my copy of it in the mail yesterday and am anxiously looking forward to delving into it.

    ICXC + NIKA,
