Today is the Memorial of St. John of the Cross
St. John of the Cross, a Carmelite priest and doctor of the Church, is hailed as one of the greatest mystical theologians in Church history. Along with his spiritual friend, St. Teresa of Avila, he set out to reform the Carmelite order to its orginal spirit -- a life of simplicity centered on interior prayer.
