Some of my favorite spiritual guides over the years have been: Ronald Rolheiser, O.M.I., Joan Chittister, OSB, Sue Monk Kidd, John O’Donohue, Michael Casey, OCSO, Joyce Rupp, the Dalai Lama, Thomas Merton, OCSO, Marcus Borg, and Nan Merrill. As you have been reading this have you begun thinking of who some of your spiritual guides are or have been? The books on your bookshelves might give you some ideas. And what was it about their writings that was significant for you? If you would like to share some of your authors with me I would love to hear from you.
