More About Saint John of the Cross
Born in 1542 in what is now Spain, St. John of the Cross entered the Carmelites in 1563 and received Holy Orders four years later. Soon after they met, St. Teresa of Avila enlisted him in her efforts to purify the Carmelite Order. When the strict observances of St John s Disclaced ("shoeless") Carmelites sparked widespread reform, some disgruntled monks captured, imprisoned, and tortured him. During those nine months and beyond, St John of the Cross endured a dark night of the soul. This and other contemplative experiences inspired his mystical theology and thereby earned him the title Doctor of the Church.
Saint John of the Cross was born in 1542 and died in 1591.
Reviews - What do customers think about Dark Night Of The Soul And Other Great Works?
challenging Nov 2, 2009
The book is written in difficult language, but the message is incredible. It helped me to understand that the dry, dark days a Christian experiences is the days that the Lord brings him closer to Him. It helped me to experience these "desert" periods with a joyful spirit, knowing that God is bringing me to Himself.
