What is Spiritual Direction?
August 29, 2016
We are often asked the question,"What is Spiritual Direction?" Although there are many great definitions and explanations of this wonderful spiritual practice, I discovered a great video interview with Fr. Joseph Tetlow, S.J., who offers us a deepening understanding of spiritual direction. Fr. Tetlow, who is considered to be one of the world's leading experts on Ignatian spirituality and a world-renowned spiritual director, is the former director of Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House at Lake Dallas, Texas, and is currently professor emeritus and writer-in-residence at Saint Louis University. Among some of his great books and articles are Ignatius Loyola: Spiritual Exercises, Choosing Christ in the World, and Making Choices in Christ.
