Course description: Spiritual directors are called to help Christians grow in holiness.  This includes an aspect of catechesis as described by the Catechism of the Catholic Church in CCC 1697: “Catechesis has to reveal in all clarity the joy and the demands of the way of Christ. Catechesis for the ‘newness of life’ in him should be: a catechesis of the Holy Spirit, … a catechesis of grace, … a catechesis of the beatitudes, … a catechesis of sin and forgiveness, … a catechesis of the human virtues, … a catechesis of the Christian virtues of faith, hope, and charity, … a catechesis of the twofold commandment of charity, … an ecclesial catechesis.”  In this course, students will learn principles and applications of moral theology, with a special focus on the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church Part III, that will assist them as spiritual directors to help their directees grow in the Christian life.
