Many people have made significant contributions to the ministry and service of spiritual direction, also known as spiritual companionship, spiritual guidance, and spiritual accompaniment. We remember those who have died. These spiritual companions have left us a rich heritage to cherish and to tend for future generations.
… We have but faith: we cannot know;
For knowledge is of things we see;
And yet we trust it comes from thee,
A beam in darkness: let it grow.
Let knowledge grow from more to more,
But more of reverence in us dwell;
That mind and soul, according well,
May make one music as before,
But vaster …
—Alfred Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam A.H.H.
