Product Description

When the humble friar Juan de Yepes felt despair creeping into his heart after months of imprisonment, he cried out to God: "Where have you hidden, my Beloved?" Today, we can hear the answer to his plea in his transcendent poetry and prose, which stand as eternal testaments to Saint John's faith, insight, and courage in dark times. His uplifting masterpieces, such as "The Spiritual Canticle" and Dark Night of the Soul, are revered by spiritual masters of every tradition.

In Saint John of the Cross, you are invited to enter into the mind and heart of one of contemplative Christianity's greatest visionaries. Through his writing and poetry, John of the Cross shares his wisdom for how we can abide in pure presence, which paths we can follow to bring clarity and peace to our souls, and how we can nurture a love that can transform even our most painful trials into an ecstatic communion with God.

Publisher's Description

When the humble friar Juan de Yepes felt despair creeping into his heart after harsh months of imprisonment, he cried out to God: "Where have you hidden, my Beloved?" In the darkness of his cell, the answer came to him at once, and poured forth in a poetic reverie that has become one of the most profound mystical works ever created. Saint John's writings, including "The Spiritual Canticle" and Dark Night of the Soul, stand today as masterpieces of faith as uplifting as they are beautiful, revered by spiritual masters of every tradition. In Saint John of the Cross, readers have the opportunity to enter into the mind and heart of one of contemplative Christianity's greatest visionaries. Through his writing and poetry, San Juan de la Cruz shares his wisdom for how we can abide in pure presence, what paths can bring clarity and peace to our souls, and how we can nurture a love that can transform even our most painful trials into an ecstatic connection with God.
