“The endurance of darkness is the preparation for great light.” Saint John of the Cross
Today we remember this great 16th century Spanish saint (1541-1591) well known for documenting his ‘Dark Night of the Soul.” Misunderstood, mistreated, and maligned – Saint John of the Cross came to know the dark intimately while imprisoned for his progressive faith. Yet through the depths of that ‘cross’ he came to a deeper understanding of the incredible heights of God’s love. May we learn from his example to seek God even when we feel abandoned and don’t understand: God’s love for us is with us even in the darkest corners of the deepest night.
“In the dark night of the soul, bright flows the river of God.” Saint John of the Cross
grace, peace & bright rivers (of Light)
