Now in solitude He guides her, He alone

She lived in solitude, and now in solitude has built her nest;
and now in solitude He guides her, He alone, who also bears in solitude the wound of love.
– Saint John of the Cross Spiritual Canticle
The more the soul is afflicted, stripped, and humiliated, the more it acquires, with purity, an aptitude for the heights. The elevation of which it becomes capable is measured by the depth of the abyss in which it has its roots and foundations.
– Saint Angela of Foligno
