As I said before this is the first year I’m paying attention to this feast because I’ve finally stopped ignoring this wonderful saint. I also recommended him to my Mom and she said he has done some good things for my family but she didn’t say what yet.
I met with my spiritual director this past Monday and feel so incredibly blessed to have him to talk to. I know there are people out there who don’t have a director because it can be hard to find one and that really makes me appreciate mine all the more. I’m guessing Teresa of Avila might have had some role in arranging this because, and I think I’ve said this before my director is a great admirer of her even more than I am, and he is everything she writes a good director should be. . This shared admiration usually means our conversations include a few minutes of talking about how great she is :P This past meeting didn’t include that though because I made a good confession instead which reminded me of how much I like that sacrament. I’ve never had a regular confessor that knew me so well until now and it is actually kind of a relief because he can give me better advice and so on, so hooray for confession and good confessors!
