Jesus as Spiritual Director?


Let’s leave piety out of this, agreed?

Is it practical for all of us – especially *some *of us, like me :rolleyes: – to have Jesus as our *sole *spiritual director?

Yes yes yes, St. Therese did – but not all of us (and especially not me) are St. Therese.

It seems to like doing such could actually be quite dangerous, especially if you don’t truly know Jesus but only ideas of Jesus, etc.


St. Therese actually did have spiritual directors as did most of the great saints…Jesus can lead you but great saints know that it is easy for the devil to deceive us and therefore having a director helps one to discern the voice of God we are hearing. If you read St Faustina, she writes a lot about her directors.
