Today we celebrate the feast of St John of the Cross.
St John of the Cross, Priest, Doctor of the Church. Born in 1542 at Fontiveros; died on this day in Ubeda. A Carmelite priest who joined Saint Teresa of Jesus in the work of Carmelite reform and, despite opposition and imprisonment, organised the discalced Carmelites. Noted for his mystical writings, which combine theology and poetry to describe the spiritual journey through darkness to union with God.
John, small in stature, showed an intense poetic sensitivity and an ascetical strength that enabled him to become a great mystic.
We pray today for the Discalced Carmelites in Ireland and worldwide. We pray for all named John.
St John of the Cross pray for us.
