Pope Francis has explicitly and repeatedly stated that discernment is essential for anyone who is a follower of Jesus Christ. But what, exactly, is discernment? Why must we do it? When do we do it? How should we do it?
In Always Discerning, Joseph A. Tetlow, S.J. delves thoughtfully into these questions and shares how lay Christians can implement discernment into not only life's big decisions but also into the everyday, more mundane choices we constantly find ourselves having to make. Guided by Scripture, Pope Francis's own words and Ignatian spirituality, Fr. Tetlow helps us see that the dynamic interrelationship of head, heart and hands is crucial to the discernment process.
