I am a secular discalced carmelite and we were finishing up The Dark Night by St. John of the Cross. I asked the question does anyone know of someone personally who has reached spiritual marraige?
Nobody knew anyone for sure. Are there secular people, carmelite or not, who has reached this level of perfection? If so, would they care to illumine the rest of us from the top of Mt. Carmel?
My point is how hard is it to reach this union in our hectic modern world? Food for thought?
