    Many Christians have heard of St. John of the Cross’ famous book, The Dark Night of the Soul. But if you’ve ever picked it up and tried to actually read it, you may have found yourself confused. What exactly is the ‘dark night’ of the soul? How do you know if you’re going through the ‘dark night’ or not?

    In this exciting Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre takes St. John of the Cross’ classic spiritual teaching on the dark night of the soul and unlocks its meaning by looking at what St. John himself considered the key to his mystical theology: Sacred Scripture. In this Bible study, you will learn about:


    • The Dark Night of the Senses vs. the Dark Night of the Spirit
    • What Bible passages were used by St. John to explain the Dark Nights
    • Who experiences the Dark Nights and why God allows them
    • What to do when experiencing the Dark Nights
    • How the Dark Nights are a kind of Purgatory on Earth


    If you’ve ever experienced difficulty and dryness in prayer, or if you’ve ever wanted to understand St. John of the Cross’ teaching from a biblical perspective, or if you just want to make progress in prayer and the spiritual life, then this Bible study on the Dark Night of the Soul is for you.

New light on a dark subject

It was a fascinating topic. I enjoyed it greatly, and listened to it a couple of times, it was so rich. I hope there is a follow up on the same subject.

Very Good!

The material St. John of the Cross wrote is not easily understood. This talk really helps to bring out the main points of the Dark Night of the Soul. This was a really good additions to my studies of St. John’s writing.

Genesis

I am listening to this while driving and sometimes deliberately take the slow lane which will keep me longer in the car. I just can’t get enough. Many thanks for making the lectures publicly available

Jesus the Bridegroom

Excellent. Great overview for the book we are using for our bible study.

Enlightening!

Great talk on adoration, and our need to spend time with our Lord.

Essential preparation for Easter

I am so glad that Dr. Petri came out with these videos of his presentations. I have read a lot of his books and use them in my Catechism Class. Please don't miss this opportunity to feast on what has taken him years to accumulate. It would be such a waste of a soul.
If your not fond of reading, definitely get his videos for yourself, your family, or for bringing back uneducated Catholics who may have left the faith. Our faith is so rich it is like a finely woven Persian carpet that takes years to make before you see the pattern...Dr. Petri has done all the weaving for you, you just get to step back and admire the work and then revel in what he reveals to you.
We are using this video in a presentation for our Parish the week before Easter...thank you Dr. Pitre!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!

As I've come to expect from Dr. Pitre!! He can take a profound mystery, which is central to our faith, and take us through a step by step process, to help us understand and appreciate this on a whole new level!! I recommend this to every Catholic!!
