Dark Night Of The Soul by Saint John of the Cross

Posted on | September 17, 2010 | 6 Comments

Dark Night Of The Soul by Saint John of the Cross ebook pdf freeDark Night Of The Soul describes the painful experiences and their significance on the spiritual journey of St. John. The dark night is perceived by mystics and practicing monks from several religions to be a blessing in disguise, whereby the individual is stripped (in the dark night of the senses) of the spiritual ecstasy associated with acts of virtue. Although the individual may for a time seem to outwardly decline in their practices of virtue, they in reality become more virtuous, as they are being virtuous less for the spiritual rewards (ecstasies in the cases of the first night) obtained and more out of a true love for God. It is this purgatory, a purgation of the soul, that brings purity and union with God. Download Dark Night Of The Soul here:

    it would be very helpful if we could download these books to our kindles, as there is a free kindle for pc at amazon.

    kindle allows the reader to stop at any time while reading the book then upon picking it up again to read it will take you back to the exact place where you where.
    pdf format does dot do this. you are taking to the beginning of the book.
