Do I need Spiritual Direction?

The distinction between spiritual direction and advice is that spiritual direction is personalized guidance for spiritual growth, focusing on particular virtues, prayer, and other aspects of spiritual life. It is intended for those already advancing in their spiritual journey and can be likened to a personal trainer for high-level athletes. On the other hand, advice or counseling is a one-time conversation aimed at addressing a specific issue.

To start spiritual direction, you should do the following consistently:

  1. Stay out of mortal sin
    • If you regularly battle mortal sin, focus on getting rid of that first.
    • Take the advice given in confession or ask for some if you don't get it.
  2. Meditate 20 minutes a day
    • Start this and you can add more later but if you start doing too much you will burn out and give up.
    • You can't become a saint without trying to improve your meditation and mental prayer.
  3. Pray the rosary every day
  4. 20-30 minutes of spiritual reading
  5. Doing a daily examination of conscience
    • Working on your predominant fault and making progress in it.
    • Find the thing you have to confess most often and start to work on that until you get rid of it.
    • The number of minuses goes down, down, down to zero.
  6. Please consider the following:
  7. -If you are doing these things and want to find a spiritual director, look for one who gives you good advice in confession.
    • He will most likely give you good advice in spiritual direction too.
    • Pray for the grace to find a good one.
    • Once you find him, pray that he would receive the graces to guide you well.

    - You don't need spiritual direction if you aren't doing these things consistently.

    - If you want to discover your vocation. You should do the things mentioned above and the meditations provided by St. Ignatius for this exact purpose.

Catholic Faith Appeal 2024 - Our goal is to raise $76,000.

Each year, the Catholic Faith Appeal (CFA) extends a heartfelt invitation for our Diocese to unite and extend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters in need. It is one of the most effective ways to carry out the work of the Church, and it is a testament to our Catholic Faith in action. Contributions to the CFA play a crucial role in supporting a diverse array of programs and services, including Vocations and Seminarians, Religious Education, aid for financially challenged Parishes and Missions, Evangelization, Catholic Education, Catholic Charities, and more. 

On an annual basis, Parishes in the Diocese of Venice make a required contribution to financially support these efforts. The Catholic Faith Appeal empowers every parishioner to actively contribute to their Parish’s financial commitment, with goals tailored to each Parish’s income rather than the number of registered families. This approach accommodates the seasonal influx of northern visitors during the winter months, significantly enhancing the Appeal’s success.

Thank you for helping us reach our goal of raising $76,000 for the Catholic Faith Appeal.

Campaña Católica Anual 2024 - Nuestra Meta es recaudar $76,000

La Campaña Católica Anual es un esfuerzo diocesano de recaudación de fondos en toda la Diócesis que apoya el trabajo caritativo y pastoral a través de programas como Pastoral y Ministerios; apoyo a misiones, parroquias y conventos pobres; Caridades Católicas, Evangelización; Culto Divino; Respeto a la Vida; Vocaciones y Seminaristas; Educación Católica; y servicios diocesanos de apoyo administrativo. Anualmente las parroquias de la Diócesis de Venice contribuyen para apoyar financiablemente estos esfuerzos. La Campaña Católica de Fe es un medio por el cual todos los feligreses, con su contribución, pueden ayudar a su parroquia a cumplir su meta. Tal se basa en el ingreso de la parroquia específica y no se basa solo en el número de familias inscritas ya que nuestra población crece en los meses de invierno con los visitantes del norte. Esto se suma en gran medida al éxito de la Campaña.

Gracias por ayudarnos a alcanzar nuestra meta de recaudar $76,000 para la Campaña de Fe Católica.
