Finding Our Way to God: Spiritual Direction and the Moral Life

Quick Overview

Finding Our Way to God offers an approach to spiritual direction using mental prayer that can be used to create healing and peace when conducting guidance sessions with seekers.

Based on the teachings of St. Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists, Fr. Dennis Billy’s approach examines the moral life in the context of spiritual direction. While thoroughly Catholic, St. Alphonsus was so pastoral — focusing on the poor and marginalized — that the approach can be easily learned and used by adherents of other religious, philosophical, and ethical traditions.

In Finding Our Way to God, Fr. Dennis Billy:

  • Teaches active listening, which is essential for spiritual directors.
  • Emphasizes the continuity between a person’s spirituality and morality through growth in the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  • Provides an understanding of how the model of spiritual direction can be adapted to meet the needs of a wide variety of people.
  • Helps the reader use Alphonsian spirituality as a backdrop for conducting spiritual direction.

In Finding Our Way to God, Fr. Dennis Billy pragmatically reveals how to gauge spiritual growth and bridge the gap between how we live today and how to live the good life of Christ, the source of all goodness. This work of love is a delight and an elixir for the heart. Clergy, religious, spiritual directors, pastoral counselors and adult faith formation ministers will find a treasure map to this good life that abounds with the fruits and gifts of the Spirit.

An important work for current times! Solidly anchored in Alphonsian spirituality and moral theology, Fr. Dennis Billy’s book, like a triptych, unfolds to reveal how it is truly Catholic, yet easily adapted to embrace ecumenical and interfaith settings of spiritual direction. Through his comprehensive treatment of the scope and skills required for spiritual direction; overview of the moral life; review of virtues, gifts, and fruits of the Holy Spirit, Finding Our Way to God is an excellent renewal resource for veteran spiritual directors, and it’s a handbook for beginning spiritual directors and those without formal training in direction whom the Holy Spirit has chosen to work with those in need. Readers will discover how the common tasks of spiritual direction and the moral life come into focus and merge.

As a son of St. Alphonsus, Fr. Dennis Billy continues Alphonsus’ mission to lead others to a deeper, more intimate relationship with God.

—Fr. Kevin O'Neil, CSsR, staff member at the San Alfonso Retreat Center, Long Branch, NJ; and coauthor of The Essential Moral Handbook and numerous books and articles.
