My friend The Catholic Journeyman left a post over on his blog about Catholic bloggers. I highly recommend you fellow bloggers to go check it out and respond. I would like to thresh out my thoughts a little more about myself too. As I have been writing on this blog for a few months now, I notice that it parallels my spiritual life in many ways. I think mine (and most people's) spirituality ebbs and flows, like a tide coming in and out. Each time it comes in, however, it is stronger than before in my case, I feel closer and closer to God. Each time it goes out, it doesn't go as far, and I don't get as distracted as I used to. I don't fall into temptation as often as I used to. Closer and closer we come until eventually we can be with God in Heaven (purgatory might help out here too). Even the saints would write about "Dark nights of the soul". We need to pray for one another and with one another to grow in faith and love and hope.
