I have been giving spiritual direction for six years, but have been receiving it even longer having first started direction in 1950, before many of you were born! I now also have given spiritual direction by e-mail; not easy as there is no body language, no tone of voice, but the Spirit is the real director and so it works. I have also been keeping a daily blog called Reflections of an RSCJ for the past two years and I teach an International Online Program in Spirituality Studies at St. Thomas University where I began the training program for Spiritual Directors over twenty years ago. I want to insist on the need for all to have a spiritual director no matter what your age. We need someone to help us grow in our relationship with the Lord; to help us discern; to help us to know ourselves and to be accountable.
For those of us who have been directing others, we know what a privileged moment direction is for both the director and the directee. May we always enter our sessions with reverence and awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit. It has changed my life because I have felt called to be an instrument in the hands of God.
