I have found in spiritual direction a light for my path, a sure way to travel through this life.
After reading Saint Faustina's "Diary of a Soul" I had a hunger to receive spiritual direction.
Upon finding out that personal spiritual direction was offered by members of Opus Dei, I knew with certainty it was my path. Over the years it has smoothed every rough spot I've encountered in life and given me peace of soul. I know that Christ is speaking to me personally through these means.
In my use of Chiaroscuro in my work as an artist, I learned a lot about the use of light and shade in painting. In a good painting the eye is directed around the canvas by the way the artist paints the light. Likewise, spiritual direction provides light in the darkness we sometimes encounter in life, a sure path: a path to holiness.
