Noted Redemptorist theologian Fr. Dennis Billy is offering his new online course free to Redemptorist confreres and friends of the Redemptorists – but only until March 5, 2019.
“Spiritual Direction and the Moral Life” focuses on the relationship between spiritual direction and morality, applying the Alphonsian approach to mental prayer to the process of spiritual direction.
Presented in four parts, each composed of five modules, the course shows how the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit influence the spiritual direction process.
In addition to continuing St. Alphonsus’ mission to lead others to a deeper, more intimate relationship with God, the course offers a simple and practical way to understand the direction process – one that can be used in a variety of contexts to meet the spiritual and moral needs of life today. It draws a close connection between spirituality and morality, between spiritual direction itself and the moral life, providing an integrated approach to life that connects holiness to wholeness and spiritual experience to moral actions.
Those interested in pursuing spiritual direction as well as spiritual directors searching for extra tools to deepen their own understanding of the direction process are encouraged to register for the online course at: https://spiritualdirectors.world/.
Fr. Dennis Billy, C.Ss.R. of the Baltimore Province is Karl Rahner Professor of Catholic Theology at the Graduate Theological Foundation. A prolific author of more than 30 books and hundreds of articles published in scholarly and popular journals, he currently serves at Notre Dame Retreat House in Canandaigua.
