Father Hewit dedicates this book: “I HAVE written this little treatise be cause I believe it to be required by the spiritual needs of a number of persons who cannot easily make use of the larger and more elaborate treatises which have been written on the same subject by the great Inasters of spiritual doctrine. I have endeavored to follow their teaching in all things, and I submit whatever I have written upon this, and upon every other subject, without any reservation, and in the spirit of filial obedience, to the supreme judgment of the Holy See.” Later on he explains: “The greatest cause of bewilderment, anxiety and discouragement to souls in the obscure night is, ignorance of the state they are in, and of the right way of conducting themselves. Let them understand that their case is not a singular one, that they are passing through a state which thousands have passed through before them, which it is necessary to pass through to attain solid virtue, and let them understand that they can fix their consciences in a secure position so as to run no risk whatever of offending God, and they will be at once strengthened and encouraged to shoulder their cross manfully, and go forward, however long and dreary may be the desert, however dense the darkness of the night.”
