ON ABANDONMENT IN THE SPIRITUAL
VARIETIES OF THE COMMON WAY:
DARKNESS, INSENSIBILITY, ETC.
PERHAPS we have now said enough on the subject of interior pains. But as they are the most distressing of trials, we cannot be to well armed to sustain their assault. At the risk of repeating ourselves, absolutely devoted to duty. It is to such generous souls we now address ourselves, to such we say: peace to men of good will. God alone is the cause of your affliction. Leave yourselves in His hands, and submit with confidence to His operation which, if very painful, is also very salutary.
