I was received into the Catholic Church at the beginning of 2010 after a long RCIA experience (started in 2007 in Afghanistan). I’ll avoid a long and drawn-out story, but I’m in the military and have finally be able to settle down into a nearby parish where I feel like I am a part of the Church. Constant moving around the country, deployments and training events all over the place seems to make it very difficult to develop my spiritual/personal relationship with God. I do many things on my own, such as praying the rosary, reading scripture and reading the works of Saints and Church Doctors. However, sometimes (many times) I feel like I need more direction in my hunger for God.
Can anyone give me some guidance on how I should seek and/or choose a spiritual director? Do I need a spiritual director? Is there anything I should avoid when seeking a spiritual director?
Thank you for all replies in advance and God bless.
