October 16 ~ Daily Wisdom from the writings of St. Paul of the Cross

Dryness is a Good Sign

Dryness of spirit, aridity, the feeling of desolation and other unpleasant feelings are gifts from the Divine Goodness. He gives them to develop fully our capacity to accept His will, and to detach us from any need for felt comfort. He thus enables us to walk in pure faith and poverty of spirit on the way of holy perfection. This road is the most secure.
