Welcome to everyone who finds this site about Catholic spiritual direction. It is designed to help fill a very genuine need that a lot of Catholics who are serious about their faith have expressed: where can we find authentic Catholic spiritual direction? My reflections and sermons arise from almost 35 years experience as a priest, and are greatly influenced by spiritual authors like St.Therese of Lisieux, St. Peter Eymard, and Archbishop Fulton Sheen. If you have any questions or comments, you can reach me at AskFatherMyers@gmail.com. God love you.
