Spirituality is a pathway to God. Spirituality is engagement with God. All religions have a sense of the transcendent. In Christianity we call the transcendent God. In Christianity, we believe that God has revealed this transcendence in the person of Jesus Christ. Spirituality may be seen in traditions and rituals. Spirituality is also seen on how spiritual people try to live their lives. A spiritual person can be recognized by their virtues and values. - Bob Mulligan, OSFS
