St John of the Cross & The Dark Night of the Soul – Eleni Roberts
About the Presentation
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. In this lecture we shall look at the life and times of St John of the Cross and his famous poem on the dark night of the soul.
