God With Us: Near and Far

When people begin to seek spiritual formation and spiritual direction, they often sense that God’s action in their daily lives appears to be absent or vague. This initial sensing that something is missing is a soft wooing of the Holy Spirit; a gift from God even before we are conscious that it is a supernatural gift.The purpose and goal of spiritual direction is to help this awareness grow until it becomes a conscious noticing of “God with you” rather than a “vague” feeling that something is missing.
