A French monk provides four key spiritual areas that must be examined on a regular basis.
French Trappist monk Dom Jean-Baptiste Chautard wrote in his popular book, The Soul of the Apostolate, about four essential spiritual areas that need to be examined on a regular basis. He writes about them in the context of spiritual direction, instructing priests on how to lead a soul closer to God. He explains that each month a spiritual director needs to explore these four areas and evaluate them. If he does, the person’s soul will be better prepared to weather the future storms of life.
