Dark night of the soul by St John of the Cross

St John of the Cross was a 16th century Spanish mystic who wanted to reform Catholicism. Because of this, he was locked up by other monks and during his imprisonment he wrote one of the world’s most famous spiritual poems: Dark Night of the Soul. After his escape, he then wrote a commentary to the poem, to explain how to deal when one feels cut off from God, and totally uninspired by anything.
