The process of conversion can be a spiritual challenge. Converts need help learning how to nurture their interior lives as Catholic Christians.
“It was about a year and a half ago that we converted, and I feel that it’s all thanks to the great spiritual directors we had in our life.”
– Jenna Wilber, Wife, Mother, Former Evangelical Protestant
It starts with prayer.
“You say that you don’t know how to pray? Put yourself in the presence of God, and once you have said, ‘Lord, I don’t know how to pray!’ rest assured that you have begun to do so.”
– St Josemaria Escriva
Start talking to God!
At the same time, learn about solid Catholic organizations and ministries whose very reason for existence is to help Catholics grow in faith, hope and love. For instance…
“God actually knows us personally. He’s not a distant God, not an abstract God… He cares about us. He loves us. He looks us in the eye.”
– Father John Bartunek, Author & Spiritual Director
Start reading great books about the interior life. Books that will teach you how to deepen your spiritual roots. Books like these.
by Dan Burke and Fr. John Bartunek
What keeps me from all the spiritual riches Christ has for me? What are my “blind spots” in the life of virtue and how can I uncover them? This book will give you the tools you need to understand how and why we grow and die in the spiritual life and what we can do about it.
by Thomas Dubay S.M.
Here is a sure guide for Christians who are considering spiritual direction or who are already engaged in the process. Fr. Dubay explains what spiritual direction is, the qualities to look for in a good spiritual director, the process of finding a director, ways to develop a deeper prayer life, and how to continue growing when your enthusiasm wears thin.
by St. Josemaria Escriva
Since this classic of Christian formation and direction was first published in 1939, more than four and a half million copies of The Way have been sold in forty-three different languages. In this book the reader essentially has one of the greatest saints of the 20th century as his or her own personal spiritual director, giving specific guidance in every area of life.
Listen to great talks on the spiritual life.
by Fr. Jordan Aumann
Basing much of his teaching on St. Thomas Aquinas, St. John of the Cross, and St. Teresa of Avila, the late Fr. Aumann’s work presents the most complete and systematic treatment of spiritual theology since Vatican II. He did much to dispel the common misconception that spiritual and mystical theology is only for the select few. God wants each of us formed in holiness.
