Spiritual direction is a “gathering together” of two in the name of Jesus, the spiritual director and the directee, to help a person develop a closer relationship with God and to better discern how the Holy Spirit is leading them in their life.
A director is a skilled, compassionate listener who is interested in your spiritual journey and is committed to holding all discussions sacred and confidential. A director also is trained and certified is Spiritual Direction by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. A director is knowledgeable of Christian tradition and human development.
A Directee comes to the sessions with an open heart, desiring and listening for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and a willingness to commit to deepening one’s relationship with God through prayer.
Directees can share their prayer experiences and personal challenges and questions with the director, who will help them to see how God may be working in their lives.
You will talk about prayer, about ways we communicate with God and the ways He communicates with you. The director will listen for God’s presence in your day-to-day life and help you become more aware of God’s grace in your life. The director listens, discerns, prays, and reflects back to you what is heard.
