 Our Description


What happens when the consolations of the spiritual life can no longer be found?  St. John of the Cross shows us how this 'Dark Night of the Soul' is an opportunity to grow closer to God.  At the same time, the work is one of grandiose prose and melodious verse that have solidified it as one of the most popular and authoritative books on the spiritual life.

Christ has given his Church throughout its 2000 year history a rich collection of saints, our older brothers and sisters in Christ,  who like our siblings on earth, help us and give us an example to grow and mature in our spiritual life.  St. John of the Cross is one such older brother who has scaled the heights of the spiritual mountain and left a masterpiece for us so that we might be better prepared to meet the Lord as we have been called.

Complete and Unabridged on 5 CDs.
