Merton on Spiritual Direction

“The whole purpose of spiritual direction is to penetrate beneath the surface of a man’s life to get behind the conventional gestures and attitudes which he presents to the world, and to bring out his inner spiritual freedom, his inmost truth, which is what we call the likeness of Christ in his soul.”

~Thomas Merton, Spiritual Direction and Meditation, p.16
