Stages on the Journey: The Three-Fold Path and the Spiritual Life

"Spirituality" is familiar topic in books and magazines, as well as on podcasts, television and thousands of websites. In our culture, the topic of spirituality is often spoken of separate from the influence of any particular expression of faith. In fact, many people who don't identify themselves as being "religious" in any way will readily label themselves as "spiritual" people.

But what does spirituality look like from the perspective of Christianity? What does it mean to someone who professes the Christian faith? In this four-part teaching series, Fr. Kevin Dellaria considers "spirituality" as the fulfillment of a person's divine potential. Human Beings were created to share in the life of God, a reality demonstrated fully in the life of Jesus Christ, and the spiritual journey is our learning to embrace the truth of God's unconditional love.
