What does “spirituality” mean?

Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all.  Catholic spirituality is reflected in values and beliefs we hold most dear; it is a sense of who we are, whose we are, and where we come from. It is rooted in Scripture and Tradition and reflected in Catholic Social Teaching.  It reflects our beliefs about why we are here, the meaning and purpose we see in our lives, and our connectedness and sense of responsibility to one another and to the world around us.
