Christus, the review of Ignatian spiritual formation, publishes an issue on the theme "For an accompaniment without hold".

The crisis of abuses, the words of Pope Francis especially in his Letter to the People of God and more recently the documentary of Arte Abused nuns, the other scandal of the Church have prompted the editorial board to take up the question of accompaniment at the risk of the hold and the means to guard against it.

"The objective of this issue is to deal with the relationship of spiritual accompaniment in order to be clear about what is consciously or unconsciously at stake in the accompaniment relationship both on the side of the accompanier and the person being accompanied. This issue is thus addressed to both. It is also a useful tool for formators of accompaniers," says Marie-Caroline Bustaret, deputy editor of Christus magazine.

The dossier of Christus magazine gives the floor to companions, trainers of companions, a doctor, a psychologist but also biblical scholars. It invalidates the idea that certain functions would immediately make them suitable for accompaniment. Ability to listen, training and supervision remain essential.

This issue reminds us that everyone can one day find themselves confronted with the hold, exercise it or undergo it. How to spot when the relationship slips into abuse? What safeguards should be put in place to avoid being trapped? What is the right to refuse? What can we accept? How can we respect the freedom of the other person when we are accompanied and how can we preserve our own freedom when we are accompanied? So many questions addressed in this dossier.

 

This issue is intended both for spiritual accompaniers and for those who are being accompanied. They will be able to reread their accompaniment to see if it fits well within the framework described in these articles.
