Reader Nancy Walton-House nominates this week’s Best Ignatian Song. It’s a lovely piece: “Holy Darkness” by Dan Schutte, one of the St. Louis Jesuits. Nancy writes:
This song is about desolation and consolation. I’ve used it very successfully with Ignatian spirituality small groups that I facilitate. Listening deeply leads to great reflection, prayer, journaling, and conversation.
The lyrics are inspired by St. John of the Cross.
