Milton Lopes offers guidance for those who are spiritually running on empty in new book

I base my ministry on the belief that deep within the ground of one’s very being, God is to be found as a ‘divine spark'.

Some Christians find themselves attending church yet sensing a nagging emptiness in their spiritual well being. Author Milton Lopes believes this is because they have lost their connection with a loving God. As a spiritual director, Lopes is dedicated to helping men and women who want to become more spiritual and to respond in a deep and sustained way to God’s call to holiness.

“I base my ministry on the belief that deep within the ground of one’s very being, God is to be found as a ‘divine spark,’” Lopes said. “My job is to help men and women to discover this spark.”

Through his new book, “Lenten Reflections: From the Desert to the Resurrection,” Lopes uses a gentle and positive method to extoll readers to “get right with God.” Within the framework of Lent he sets out to help his readers experience a deeper awareness of God’s presence and to be more attentive to how he is guiding them. Lopes provides the reader with a clear pathway to discerning, recognizing and understanding God’s movement in life, within and outside of the Church. Though focused on Lent, his book provides yearlong guidance.

A retired Professor of Public Policy and Organization Studies, Milton Lopes has over forty years of business and academic experience. He is an active member of the Catholic community in Athens, Georgia.
