review La noche oscura del alma 103 K Night of the Soul The most sublime of all Spanish mystics he soars aloft on the wings of Divine love to heights known hardly to any of them True to the character of his thought his style is always forceful and energetic Dark Night of the Soul follows the soul's journey from a state of abandonment and darkness to a loving union with God In a voice at once grandiose and melodious and a style that combines the systematic theology of St Thomas Auinas with rapturous poetry St John describes the process of moving away from routin. One fine day in the fourth grade at Immaculate Conception School one of my classmates raised her hand and asked how were your sins cleaned out of you in Purgatory The old nun sneered They re burned out of you Now I know where she heard that It s all right here in this book According to St John of the Cross while your soul is in Purgatory the love of God ignites it like a log And like a log its composition changes as the fire burns The entire month or so that it took me to read this difficult book I kept asking myself the same uestion of St John of the Cross that I asked secretly about Sr Gertrude Margaret s answer How do you know Did you visit Purgatory and come back to tell usSo why did I read this book One fine Saturday morning during Advent I went to mass It wasn t Sunday but I wanted to appreciate that Advent is different from the rest of the year and clean my spiritual house for the arrival of Jesus That particular Saturday just happened to be the F

review La noche oscura del alma 103 E religious rituals and embracing a Being who can be known only through love His words Peers writes are a wonderful illustration of the theological truth that grace far from destroying nature ennobles and dignifies it and of the agreement always found between the natural and the supernatural between the principles of sound reason and the sublime manifestations of Divine grace One of the greatest contributions to the literature of mysticism Dark Night of the Soul offers support and encouragement to all who seek oneness with Go. This is not a book for everyone Well it s potentially for everyone Anyone who not only believes in Christ but desires to be as close to God through Him as possible The trick is that it comes at a terrible price few are willing to pay Yet for those who will the rewards are infiniteThis is a work of classic mystical theology from the Catholic Reformation period by a Spanish mystic popularly known as St John of the Cross Read this book and you ll find what an appropriate nickname that really is It s a truism of mystical piety that the closer one comes to God the greater one struggles with his or her demons For those who desire to step into the light of union with God defined by John of the Cross as perfect love the way is through the dark night of the senses and the dark night of the spiritIf you don t know what I mean read Mother Teresa s Come Be My Light in order to see what the dark night of the soul looks and feels like in an actual human beingJohn of the
