Spiritual Directors QUESTION from S October 18, 2000 My question is about spiritual directors ... how would I find a good one? Please don't recommend that I see my pastor ... His sermons are so frequently off-the-mark theologically and I judge he would not do well. What exactly does a spiritual director do? Any comments and suggestions you have will be appreciated. Thank you, and God bless.
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on December 17, 2000 Dear S:
The best recommendation I can make that will answer about all your questions on Spiritual Directors -- what they do and don't do, who to look for, what to expect, what not to expect, what to do if you can't find one -- is to purchase and read the book, Seeking Spiritual Direction: How to Grow the Divine Life Within by Father Thomas Dubay.
If you click on the link above it will take you to Amazon Books so that you may purchase it if you wish.
This book is the definitive book on learning about what Spiritual Direction is and what to do if you can't find a spiritual director.
