Eternal Father, please let the Word of God and the inspiration of Holy Spirit be the true spiritual director and guide of souls who come into their care.
Holy Spirit, be the fire in their teaching and witness, to flame their charges with love for the Trinity; and to light in them the blazing contagion of the gospel way of life!
Shine Your truth through them, so that in Your apt, creative and inspired use of the gifts and weaknesses of their nature, they may inspire their charges with fervour for on-going conversion, with Your divine thirst for souls, with Your love of truth justice and peace, Set them ablaze as evangelisers, zealous for Your Kingdom.
Illuminate our obstacles to Your grace. Remove them or re-form them into springboards for deeper love of God and correct love of ourselves and our brothers and sisters. Be You their true spiritual director. Thus, through Your life in Your spiritual directors, let the kingdom of God come to reign amongst us, for the salvation of souls and the glory of God.
Father please do not allow those who accept spiritual direction become attached to their directors, or to be fearful of them, but to see them as pathways to You. Please inspire their hearts and minds to listen and to welcome into their lives the witness and guidance given to them by their spiritual directors.
