During her first night at Northanger Abbey, Catherine Morland’s imagination gets the better of her. In the old, dark, and drafty house, with a storm raging outside, it doesn’t take much for the fanciful Catherine to lose her nerve. When she goes to her chamber at the end of the evening, she enters “her room with a tolerably stout heart.” However, once her fire dies down and her candle goes out, Catherine’s bravery quickly dissolves.
To Thy Goodness we commend ourselves this night beseeching thy protection of us through its darkness & dangers..
Do you struggle with fear?
