  1. Thank you, Father, for the information about Spiritual Direction. As a trained Spiritual Director associated with the West Virginia Institute for Spirituality in Charleston, WV, I appreciate the importance of people becoming familiar with this discipline. As I companion with persons in Spiritual Direction, I find that they discover new opportunities for deepening mindfulness, developing a more meaningful prayer practice, finding interior peace, and integrating moral and ethical values. Thank you for sharing your own personal experience with Spiritual Direction.

    As the smmer comes and people are heading off to the beach or other vacation spots and there is time for reading I would recomend the book by Michael Leach, editor of Orbis Books, ” Why Stay Catholic.” He combines Catholic dogma and traditional practices that rekindles the Truth that our Faith possesses. I would like to hear others thoughts on the book.

  3. I have never read the book “Why stay a Catholic” but my faith is so strong in the Catholics beliefs that I can not see straying from the Spirit of God..
    ” Lord make me an instrument of your peace” When I leave the doors of the church, I don’t leave everything behind those doors. I carry the Word of God with me to share it with others in the community. God is Great! The Holy Spirit is a flame that can grow into a huge fire. As a Catholic I have lots of work to do.

    You should write a paper on how to make a really good Examen.

    For the quotation on the mouse story ~ could it be:
    1st Corinthians 12:26 “If one parts suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy. Or could it be the 3 Musketeers: All for one and one for all?

    –Everyone needs to read ‘Discernment’; it gives inner peace. In summary, there is not always just one right path to follow or, choice. Just allow your relationship and Faith in God help guide you in life’s journeys. The article is actually much better than that summary–read it!
    –‘Spirituality’ is very deep, requiring concentration but, very good and true if concentrating! What I mean is, be ready to focus while reading, and you will appreciate it more. I bet that we all can relate somehow with ourselves or others to every notation.
    –Father, thank you for providing (and guiding me to) this wonderful blog; it gives me more time to concentrate and reflect on God each busy day (early and late).
