Migrant Spirituality makes visible the migration
stories of African-born migrants to the USA, analyzes their
experiences, and appreciates them as a source for
theological reflection. The correlation of these narratives
with John of the Cross‘ narrative of The Dark Night
reveals that the dynamic between the concepts of
vulnerability, spiritual humility, and God’s transformative
agency is central to understanding the spiritual dimension
of the process of transformation in both narratives.

Dorris van Gaal studied theology at the
