“Left to darkness, in pure faith, which is a dark night to my natural faculties, and with only my will touched by the sorrows, afflictions, and longings of love of God, I went out from myself.  That is, I departed from my low manner of understanding, and my feeble way of loving, and my poor and limited method of finding satisfaction in God.  I did this unhindered.  

This was a great happiness and a sheer grace for me.”  St John of the Cross

“Do not rejoice over me, my enemy, for though I fell I will rise! Though I sit in the darkness, God is a light unto me!” Micah 7:8
