“Spiritual people suffer great trials, not so much of the aridities which they suffer, as from the fear which haunts them as if they were lost on the road, believing that all the spiritual blessings are over for them, and God has abandoned them since they no longer can find help or pleasure in good things”. An excerpt, from the 10th chapter of “The Dark Night”; Book One Indeed…this is the fear, which comes to plague all pilgrims as they pass through the road, which leads to God. St. John however, continually, lays down similar “night lights” atop of the guideposts along the way, ensuring everyone a safe passage. This book concludes the journey started in “The Ascent of Mount Carmel”. This illustrious pilgrimage to union with God is eloquently laid out in and expound from prose. St. John takes to pilgrim from the carnage of himself to the inner sanctum with God. Many theologians and spiritual masterminds have written similar works, but none so precise as St John of the Cross.
