Topics/Questions covered in the show:

  • How can we tell if a trial is the work of God and not the work of the devil?
  • Some tools for discernment: daily examen, spiritual direction, St. Ignatius’ Rules of Discernment.
  • Can an action that seems to be in service to God be inspired by the enemy?
