The Dark Night of Contemplation: The Touch of Fire!

Sometimes the dark night of contemplation strikes the mind and the will simultaneously, enkindling a sublime and powerful love. Remember: once the mind has been purified, it is more likely to come into harmony with the will. To the extent that both are purified, the union is that much deeper. But before the soul attains to such a place of purification, it is more common for her to experience the touch of fire in the will than the touch of understanding in the mind.
