Here is a powerful, life-changing book that can assist you take note and conquer the struggles you face in your spiritual life. It’s a book for individuals who love the Lord and desire holiness yet incessantly feel adrift or stagnant in their search for spiritual growth.

All of us encounter valleys on our journey with the Lord ― those periods of spiritual desolation that are a painful yet unavoidable feature of our prayer life. Spiritual desolation is as complex as we are, so understanding what is happening and responding to it properly are critical to reaching the heights of holiness.

With warmth and understanding, Fr. Gallagher carefully identifies in this book the more than a few forms of spiritual and nonspiritual desolation and supplies the treatment for each. You’ll discover ways to discern whether your struggles derive from medical or psychological conditions or whether those struggles are spiritual and permitted by the Lord for reasons of growth. In each case, you’ll be given the treatment for the struggle. You’ll also learn the forms of spiritual dryness and of the Dark Night ― and how to respond to them.

In chapter after chapter, Fr. Gallagher presents a particular struggle as experienced by fictional characters and then provides the advice he gives to those who come to him for spiritual direction about that struggle. You’ll gain confidence as you journey through desolation, and you’ll learn how to reject the enemy’s ploys to infect you with a sense of hopelessness. You’ll also learn:

  • What to do if you find yourself tired, burned out, or overwhelmed by life
  • How to respond when you feel burdened or at a loss for words in prayer
  • What it means when the enemy causes a disturbance in your soul
  • Spiritual tactics to employ if you find yourself experiencing struggles
  • What to do when you experience disquiet from worldly agitations and temptations
  • How to push back when the enemy threatens your confidence in God and His work in your life
