For the Feast of St. John of the Cross

Fr. Joachim, of the Franciscans of the Immaculate on the life of St. John of the Cross, Doctor of the Church, how he had early mystical and miraculous experiences, entered religious life, started a reform of the Carmelites which resulted in many persecutions and wrote many classic spiritual books.

St. John of the Cross teaches us to find delight in spiritual things and to wean ourselves from the delights of the world. The depths of his insights on mystical prayer have earned him the title of Doctor of the Church.
