Solemnity of St. John of the Cross

Posted on 14th December, 2020


St. John of the CrossPlease join us in celebrating the Solemnity of Our Holy Father, St. John of the Cross, today. Below is part of his 'Prayer of a Soul Taken with Love'.


"Mine are the heavens and mine is the earth. Mine are the nations, the just are mine, and mine the sinners. The angels are mine, and the Mother of God, and all things are mine; and God himself is mine and for me, because Christ is mine and all for me. What do you ask, then, and seek, my soul? Yours is all of this, and all is for you. Do not engage yourself in something less or pay heed to the crumbs that fall from your Father’s table. Go forth and exult in your Glory! Hide yourself in it and rejoice, and you will obtain the supplications of your heart."
