Guidance in Spiritual Direction


Category: Religion: Spirituality


Rev. Charles Hugo Doyle


Copyright/published Year: 1958 by Newman Press


Binding: hardcover

Father Doyle strives to encourage priests to take up their most important task as confessors, that of spiritual direction. Unfortunately confession have come to be a routine laundry list of sins, a penance of three Hail Marys and dismissal after absolution. Spiritual direction is a necessary part of the pastoral office to launch souls on the road to heaven and to keep them on the straight and narrow. All need spiritual direction from the Pope to the humblest little child. Father Doyle gives practical advice, which is useful not only to priests, but also to the faithful as well. St. Vincent Ferrer, the great Dominican saint, says the following about spiritual direction: "A person who has a director by whom he allows himself to be guided, whom he obeys in all his actions, great and small, will more easily and quickly arrive at perfection than he ever could by himself, even were he gifted with an enraordinary degree of intelligence .
