Product Description

In Dark Night of the Soul, Saint John of the Cross presents for us a portrait – painted from his own experience – of one who advances successfully through the struggles of the spiritual life. The “dark night” that St. John describes is not abandonment by God but special consideration from Him for those who desire to purify and perfect their souls. With a soul purified from earthly attachments, we can advance through the much quoted but oft misunderstood “dark night of the soul” into unity with God. By accepting the desolation and difficulty of this process, the soul cooperates with God and opens itself to receiving and revealing more perfectly God’s glory. Be not afraid – Dark Night of the Soul, though austere and exacting in its instructions for holy living, is laced through with St. John’s charity and kindness, his love of all things beautiful and sacred – including you.

Part of the Saint Benedict Press Classic series.

Review: Very good book but you need to pray your way through it. I have not yet finished it. Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Well Written
