us, gave us life. Our own response of love allows God's life to flow into
us without limit." (Ignatius of Loyola)
"My passion for spiritual direction is rooted in
the delight and joy of discerning God's desire for one's life and sharing the
journey through spiritual companionship."
"Be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may
discern what is the will of God--what is good and acceptable and perfect."
