The Map | Physically Spiritual S2E9

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

How could we expect to arrive at a destination without knowing where it is? Many who are seeking the Lord, while sincere and generous, wander through their spiritual lives without confidence or direction. In this episode of Physically Spiritual we will explore the traditional map of our journey to God on Earth: the Three Ages of the Interior Life and the Seven Mansion of the Interior Castle.
