As a Fiery Light

'As a fiery light shone in the night's darkness upon those wandering in the desert, so those who dwell in the spiritual monasteries are often lightened by the rays of a supernal light, which dispels the darkness of fleshly passions and bathes them in the brilliance of inward contemplation.'

St. Peter Damian


  1. Nancy - I don't remember seeing the term "spiritual monasteries" written in too many places. Reading it brought forth a little "light" from within. Thank you.

    1. I was struck by that term also, Connie. In fact, just after I typed it here, it grabbed me so much that I checked back to be sure I'd read it correctly!
