It is no wonder that Jesus sent the disciples two by two when going about their ministries. Many times we find that there are places, movements in our spirit or times of decision, distress or loneliness where we long for a soul companion. This is where a Spiritual director may be very helpful. Many find them helpful on a regular basis also!
Here is a description of spiritual direction from some well-known travellers:
" a relationship initiated by a spiritual seeker who finds a mature person of faith willing to pray and respond with wisdom and understanding to his or her questions about how to live spiritually in a world of ambiguity and distraction". Henri Nouwen.
