The whole purpose of spiritual direction is to penetrate beneath the surface of a person’s life, to get behind the face of conventional gestures and attitudes which are presented to the world, and to bring out the person’s inner spiritual freedom, his/her inmost truth, which is what we call the likeness of Christ in his/her soul. – Thomas Merton
