Oh, I was definitely instructed to do it, there were just a few technical questions I have. I am still having difficulty acclimating to having a spiritual father, to be honest. In the Roman Catholic parishes I grew up in, priests never had time to talk about anything or even answer questions. When I ask my spiritual father for anything, I feel like a pest (which, to be sure, is not any of his doing at all - he has been nothing but helpful). But I will go to him with this.
