Intimate Aridity

At the shrine of Mary Annai Velangkanni in Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia

By means of spiritual aridity, God unites Himself intimately with the souls He loves in an especial manner… we see the milk of consolations give place to the more substantial food of afflictions; and this it is that enables them to bear the burden of the cross on their journey to Calvary’s Mount.
Saint Alphonsus Liguori
