The Fall

"But when the time comes to enter the darkness in which we are naked and helpless and alone; in which we see the insufficiency of our greatest strength and the hollowness of our strongest virtues; in which we have nothing of our own to rely on, and nothing in our nature to support us, and nothing in the world to guide us or give us light-then we find out whether or not we live by faith."
-Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
