August 29, 2011 – St. John of the Cross – Active night of the Spirit
// August 29th, 2011 // Carmelite Conversations
This program provides an introduction St John of the Cross’ teaching on the four nights that he uses to describe the spiritual journey. This program introduces the Active Night of Spirit. Here the soul must take responsibility to begin to detach itself from even the spiritual consolations we experience along the journey. We must look beyond the simple consolations of prayer, so that we can reach the higher states of prayer.
