As a spiritual director I work with moms, all types of moms, stay-at-home, work-at-home, work-out side-of home, all kinds; and every one of them have had a dark night of the soul. This is a very timely post for Holy Saturday, if we remember our Scripture Jesus prays over his dark night, praying so feverantly that he sweats droplets of blood.
What is the Dark Night of the Soul? It is a spiritual crisis, many times manifesting itself as a rift in the relationship between you and God. Often it comes because of great transitions in family, martial or work relations. They can come when our vocation has had a dynamic change or we perceive a change. They can come because long held beliefs have been challenged and caused us to rethink those believes.
