St John of the Cross, Discalced Carmelite Friar, Priest and Doctor of the Church (1542-91)

Today we celebrate that great mystic St John of the Cross. Here are some quotes for our meditation today.

“Abide in peace, banish cares, take no account of all that happens, and you will serve God according to his good pleasure and rest in him.”

“In tribulation immediately draw near to God with confidence, and you will receive strength, enlightenment, and instruction.”

“In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone.”

“Love consists not in feeling great things but in having great detachment and in suffering for the Beloved.”
