From The Most Reverend Leo O'Reilly Bishop of Kilmore
Direction For Our Times (DFOT) is a religious movement founded by "Anne," a lay apostle
from our diocese who wishes to remain anonymous. The movement is in its infancy and does not as yet enjoy canonical
I have asked a priest of the diocese, Fr. Darragh Connolly, to assist in the work of the movement and to ensure
that in all its works and publications it remains firmly within the teaching and practice of the Catholic Church.
I have known "Anne," the founder of the movement, for several years. She is a Catholic in good standing
in the diocese, a wife and mother of small children, and a woman of deep spirituality. From the beginning, she
has always been anxious that everything connected with the movement be subject to the authority of the Church.
She has submitted all her writings to me and will not publish anything without my permission. She has submitted
her writings to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and I have done so, as well.
In so far as I am able to judge, she is orthodox in her writings and teaching. Her spirituality and the spiritual
path that she proposes to those who wish to accept it are in conformity with the teachings of the Church and of
the great spiritual writers of the past and present.
