The Vision Of The Faithful




Even though the night darkens your spirit,
its purpose is to impart light.

Even though it humbles you, revealing the depth of your wretchedness,
its purpose is to exalt and uplift you.

Even though it empties you of all natural pleasures,
its purpose is to fill you with spiritual joy and attach you to the source
of that joy.

– St. John of the Cross
