    Warnings about not having a spiritual director:

    “Do not be your own master and do not set out upon a way that is entirely new for you without a guide; otherwise you will soon go astray.” – St. Jerome

    “As a blind man cannot follow the good road without a leader, no one can walk without a guide.” – St. Augustine

    “Our Lord Jesus Christ, without whom we can do nothing, will not give his grace to him who, though he has access to an expert guide, rejects this precious means of sanctification, thinking that he can look after on his own everything that touches on his salvation. He who has a director… will reach his goal more easily and more quickly than if he acted as his own guide, even if he be very intelligent and have the very best of spiritual books.” – St. Vincent Ferrer

    “Sometimes the painstaking search for a director is just as important as the process of spiritual direction itself.” – Dan Burke in “Navigating the Interior Life”
