Christian Counseling Program Article on Spiritual Desolation

Christian Counseling Program Article on Spiritual Desolation

In our Christian faith, it is not uncommon to go through dry spiritual phases of our life.  In these phases we experience doubt, lack of spiritual fire and enthusiasm, as well as in some cases, spiritual neglect.   We refer to these times as periods of desolation. The desert fathers, St Teresa of Avila, as well as St Ignatius Loyola, all refer to these periods of times where the heart does not feel the response of the divine and feels, as Christ did on the cross, all but forsaken.  We also see it in the story of Job, where Job appears

Love is patient.  This is a key ingredient we hear many times about love.  It does not seek to force itself upon the beloved, but patiently waits.  It also continues
