There is no difficulty about the spiritual and material interacting. The idea that the two can't interact is only because of Cartesian dualism. If that dualism is true, then God could not have even created a material world because He is spiritual. Angels interact with the physical world or at least have in the past. Our soul exerts itself by controlling our body. Relations (immaterial mode of being that Aristotle called an accident in his categories) connect all objects while at the same time differentiating them, down to the very foundations of how the world works: the relations between matter and form or essence and existence for example. Causality is entirely a mix of material interaction and immaterial relations.

But asking how precisely the two interact is, in my mind, asking how gravity exerts its force on physical objects even though we can't see it.
