The Long Dark Light of the Soul

16 May

“I’ve had a greater desire not to see God and the saints, and to remain in the night of faith, than others to see and understand.”

St. Therese of Lisieux  (1873-1897)

” … her soul was invaded by ‘the thickest darkness.’  The thought of heaven’ became a torment.  A great fog descended; heaven and everything connected with it disappeared.  She entered what she called ‘a night of nothingness’ . . . There was no escape upward (or outward).  A wall had come down.  All that was left her was the present moment.”
