Are you a believer and have steadily been working on improving your prayer life but now feel you have hit a wall? Do you pray and yet your heart feels separated from God, that you have no taste for thoughts, memories, and feelings, even spiritual ones? That you are praying in a deep void with no echoes of reply that God is there with you always?
If you are truly living your faith, yet have one of these symptoms you might be experiencing spiritual dryness.
Spiritual xerosis is a serious problem which can severely affect your faith if not treated correctly.
First off if you have Spiritual xerosis – don’t be embarrassed – you are in good company. Throughout history the saints have experienced this in short bouts or even throughout their lives.
St. Thérèse says that, "although I had not the consolation of faith, I forced myself to act as if I had. I have made more acts of faith in the last year than in the whole of my life" and "If you think of the poems I have written, . . . I must have seemed overwhelmed with spiritual consolation and like a child for whom the veil of faith is almost torn apart. But there is no veil, but instead a wall which towers to the sky and hides the stars."
In the case of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta she disclosed to her spiritual advisors feelings of "doubt, loneliness, and abandonment. God seemed absent, heaven empty, and bitterest of all, her own suffering seemed to count for nothing, ". . . just that terrible pain of loss, of God not wanting me, of God not being God, of God not really existing."
Now your thinking "Oh great if they suffered like that, what am I going to do?"
