Spiritual accompaniment, also known as Spiritual Direction, is a process to help you grow closer to God. This process involves taking on spiritual practices to help you to notice, listen and respond to God’s invitations.
Through conversation in an atmosphere of trust, your companion guides you toward a greater awareness of the presence and inspirations of Christ in your daily life. As you share your dreams, struggles, triumphs and fears, you open up to the deepest and wisest source of freedom and joy – God.
Spiritual Direction is ultimately centred on deepening your personal relationship with God as your soul makes its journey towards a total and perfect union in eternity. This is what the Catholic Church defines as our response to the ‘universal call to holiness’ (Lumen Gentium, 39). Perfect Joy is experienced when one is completely surrendered to the Divine and allows for His will to increasingly be done in our lives each day.
