Product Description

"John was a gifted spiritual writer, but writing was not his major occupation. He was active as a superior and founder of monasteries .... Over his lifetime, his formal writing, including correspondence, amounts to no more than a thousand pages. Yet in these relatively few pages a touching record or the mystical life is set forth. John of the Cross means to make God's love available to all who seriously pursue the life of prayer."
-from Emilie Griffin's Introduction

Publisher's Description

John of the Cross was a sixteenth–century Spanish Carmelite monk, mystic, and contemporary of Teresa of Avila who became one of Christianity's foremost spiritual teachers. He is most famous for his lyrical poetry, in which he beautifully describes a tender, loving God. This volume contains his most stirring works, including the classic The Dark Night, in which John expands on the role of darkness in the spiritual journey:

"It remains to be said, then, that even though this happy night darkens the spirit, it does so only to impart light concerning all things. And even though it humbles persons and reveals their miseries, it does so only to exalt them. And even though it impoverishes and empties them of all possessions and natural affection, it does so only that they may reach out divinely to the enjoyment of all earthly and heavenly things, with a general freedom of spirit in them all." –– John of the Cross
