The Dark Night of the Soul by St. John of the Cross--How the journey of self-denial leads to perfect union with God--is one of the great works of Christian Mysticism.
A new edition by St. Benedict Press and translated by David Lewis.
When prayers go dry on the tongue, and any sense of God in the world is lost, it seems the spiritual seeker has nowhere to turn. This is the dark night of the soul that the great sixteenth-century saint John of the Cross experienced when he could no longer feel God's presence and when prayer and spiritual practice no longer inspired him. The poem he wrote while in prison, on a scroll smuggled to him by one of his guards, has never been translated complete with his later commentary by anyone outside the Catholic church.
