The Pope’s latest encouragement to mercy and spiritual direction
A recurring theme is emerging in Pope Benedict’s pontificate, the importance of spiritual direction. His latest encouragement of this practice is his most significant. It is a beautiful call for priests to reflect on how to more effectively minister grace and mercy through confession and spiritual direction. This important document comes at a critical time of preparation for World Youth Day and the anticipated work of the Holy Spirit in this significant gathering of the faithful. I heartily recommend this insightful and encouraging document to priests, religious, lay spiritual directors, and all who desire to more fully engage Christ and his grace in confession and spiritual direction. The document is offered through the Vatican’s Congregation for the Clergy and can be found in full here.
