The best spiritual director.... Oct 8, 2008
..for me - has been found. I was told, in my request for the way to find a spiritual director was to pray, of course. And, I realize as I sit quietly each morning that Joan Chittister is the best choice for me. I highly recommend her challenging words as well as the format for reflection. It took me a day or two to not race through, but a daily re-read of the "how to use this book" enabled me to find the pace that offers the most contemplative opportunity a book has yet to provide. On day 13, I can honestly say, that each day has been amazingly timed. I've used in "before my work day" setting, for the Sabbath, and now in a week of solitude and silence. All three settings have produced a similar yield of grace.
