Talking spiritual things

In a Seculars group meeting on Saturday the discussion turned to spiritual sharing and we agreed that it is often difficult to raise spiritual questions with others, even though those questions are so important - indeed they concern life-or-death issues. Other family members may get irritated if we venture observations or questions in this area. Moreover even in a church context - coffee after mass for example - such sharing may be difficult or even actively discouraged. Regarding fellow family members, one member of the group observed that there can be underlying guilt feelings which manifest as annoyance. The general conclusion to our discussion was that we have to practise a huge sensitivity to where others are at.
