You find no solace in Scripture. Your prayers simply bounce of the ceiling. And your doubts about God, that you had hidden so carefully, are now impossible to ignore. As we walk upon the road of faith all of us will eventually find ourselves bogged down in a spiritual depression or what St. John of the Cross calls the Dark Night. In Dark Night of the Soul St. John teaches us that those moments, which seem so threatening to our spiritual vitality, are actually an invitation to move beyond besetting sin and move closer to God. As you continue down the narrow road of faith you are bound to face some Dark Nights. Let St. John of the Cross guide you through these nights, so that you can continue on your journey towards God.
