Product Description

Both a reflection and a practical guidebook on spiritual accompaniment, or direction, Light for My Path does not sidestep such delicate issues as: the relationship between authority and spiritual direction, how to discern the vocation of a person with a homosexual orientation, and the presence of delusions along the spiritual journey. Dom Bernardo Olivera also makes a distinction between spiritual direction and sacramental confession, and explores the relationship between authority and therapy, while showing the complementarities for each. Through repeated and balanced references to tradition, the teaching of the magisterium, andpsychology, readers will realize how grace meets people in their humanity.

Dom Bernardo Olivera was born in Argentina in 1943. He entered the Trappist Abbey of Azul after his university studies and completed his theological studies at the Catholic University of Argentina and in Rome. Olivera had been master of novices and abbot of his community before being elected Abbot General of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (Trappists) in 1990, a position he held until his resignation in 2008.

Editorial Reviews

Light for My Path is a small book on spiritual accompaniment for the monastic formation of consecrated persons (monks and nuns), but it is full of wisdom for the reflective layperson as well.
Catholic Library World

I have read many books on being a spiritual director and a guide for souls. This book, however, is by far the best. It reaches depths and complexities that I have not read elsewhere. I am impressed by what the author has to say. . . . This book is worth reading for two reasons. First, it is perhaps the best book on spiritual accompaniment. Second, in presenting what the one doing the accompanying should be like, the author presents what all of us should be striving for as people of faith seeking human and spiritual maturity.
American Benedictine Review

The Bibliography directs us to priceless treasures. Appetizing, don’t you think?
CR

God is everywhere and anywhere, ever with you. Light for My Path: Spiritual Accompaniment discusses God and spirituality in everyday life when dealing with a not-so spiritual world. Written by respected religious figure Dom Bernardo Olivera and expertly translated by Augustine Roberts, Light for My Path is a read that should be strongly considered by all Christians.
