"How the journey of self-denial leads to perfect union with God." Translated by David Lewis, Edited and with an Introduction by Benedict Zimmerman, O.C.D. This edition has been a re-typeset using the text of the 1916 edition published by Thomas Baker, London.
In Dark Night of the Soul, St. John presents for us a portrait, painted from his own experience, of one who advances successfully through the struggles of the spiritual life.
Be not afraid, Dark Night of the Soul, though austere and exacting in its instructions for holy living, is laced through with St. John's charity and kindness, his love of all thinks beautiful and sacred, including you!
