Today I met with Msgr. John to see if he might serve as my Spiritual Director. As mentioned in an earlier post, we are to meet with our Spiritual Director on a monthly basis. While what is discussed between an Aspirant and his Spiritual Director is confidential, the Diaconate Formation team will check with the Spiritual Director to make certain the monthly meetings are taking place.
We talked for about 45 minutes about my past, why I think I'm being called to the diaconate, and about my prayer life. I asked him a few questions as well. At the end I asked if he would be open to serving as my Spiritual Director. He said yes he would. He encouraged me to keep a journal so that as thoughts, issues, or questions came up through the month I could write them down and bring that with me to share with him. We meet again in late October.
