“I Remained, Lost in Oblivion”

“On a dark night…I remained, lost in oblivion;
My face I reclined on the Beloved.
All ceased and I abandoned myself,
Leaving my cares forgotten among the lilies.”

  •  St. John of the Cross, The Dark Night of the Soul

 

May you, in your seasons of darkness, rest your weary head on the One who loves you and will not forsake you.  And there, may you abandon yourself and cast all your cares upon Him.

Merry Christmas, my friends.
