Walking Through Darkness

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, December 14, 2017

Saint John of the Cross (1542–1591), aka ‘San Juan de la Cruz’ in Spanish, was a Spanish mystic most well known for writing the highly-regarded book “The Dark Night of the Soul,” which explores the doubt and spiritual dryness all serious Christians experience on their spiritual journey. Though difficult and painful, the dark night of the soul is an invitation to a deeper closeness with God through greater trust and abandonment to God’s will. Saint John wrote, “Oh night that guided me, Oh night more lovely than the dawn.” During the holiday season it’s not unusual for people to experience doubt and emptiness. Pray to Saint John of the Cross to shore up your faith and give you courage on your way toward God.
