Franciscan Father Albert Haase, former missionary in China seasoned spiritual director, here offers a follow-up to his previous video, based as well on his 2013 book, Catching Fire, Becoming Flame. Using much scriptural material and works from the Catholic mystical tradition, Haase addresses how to keep ones spiritual flame burning. His six presentation"Grace and Spiritual Direction," "Resisting Temptation," "The Four Ds" (dryness, darkness, depression, and desolation), "Making Sense of Suffering," "Living in the Present Moment," and "Agenda of the Ego"offer an animated Haase deftly relating to the topics. Relevant illustrations and graphics help to reinforce his message. While based on the catholic tradition, the video would appeal to anyone seeking a deeper spiritual life.
Though not replacing face-to-face direction, the solid advice offered in this program, filmed in front of a live audience in such a way that the viewer feels part of the group, will help anyone who has been struggling with their spirituality. Augustine J. Curley, Library Journal
