Spirituality in Children

Posted on 13. Jun, 2013, in Spirituality1 Comment

It was often understood that spirituality was something that had to be taught to children. However Dr. Michael Sullivan SJ, Director of the MA in Applied Christian Spirituality in All Hallows College and co-editor of the book Spiritual Capital – Spirituality in Practice in Christian Perspective says that even very young children have a sense of spirituality. He tells Pat Coyle how his own spiritual experience as a young person informed his life long understanding of God as kind and loving.

    What a beautiful interview. I loved the personal story of Michael’s father and the long-lasting effect his words had. It shows too how every experience is a spiritual one. That question of our not having the language today to explore the spiritual dimension of our lives is a vital key. Let us believer that something new is happening to include this, as we go beyond the shackles of our past.
