The journey toward God is not meant to be a solitary journey—as we walk this earthly path we walk in communion with others. Often God’s desires for us are made known through our own prayer as well as the wise guidance, support, and loving challenge of another person. Every faith tradition in the world has seeker-guide relationships.

Spiritual Direction
Seeking a Deeper Relatonship with God

What you can expect

The content of the direction session is simply your life: whatever aspect, story, or experience you feel moved to bring to prayer and reflection. You as the seeker, your director, and the Holy Spirit meet in holy conversation so “you may have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

The Role of Your Spiritual Director

Your spiritual director will listen and offer clarity about the hints and guesses, the invitations, and the “nudgings” of the Spirit in your life. He/she will help you gain awareness, to notice, to “wake up” to the spiritual relationship you have with God. Your director may help you with discernment, spiritual practices, methods of prayer, and at times suggest scripture and other spiritual reading that may enlighten your path.

He/she will be present as a compassionate, and respectful witness to the joys and sorrows of your journey. Together you will pray for that “closer walk” with God. Prayer will be a part of your session and your director continues to hold you in prayer between sessions. (Adapted from Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, used with permission).
