Through the ministry of spiritual direction, I feel I can make a difference in people’s lives. I feel that the Holy Spirit works through us to help each other on the spiritual path. We can encounter God’s presence not only in the Eucharist, and in our deepest spiritual reflection, but in the beauty of our connectedness as humans. Through the ministry of spiritual direction, I hope to help others discover the divine within…to be the second listener reflecting back God’s presence in their lives.

The French Catholic philosopher Louis Lavelle wrote: “Every person responds with total confidence and joy to one who would draw him towards a presence from which he draws strength; for when another makes him aware of it, that presence ceases to be an illusion, a fiction, or a mere hope, and becomes the very presence of the living God.”
