He is one of thirty-six Doctors of the Church. John of the Cross is known especially for his writings. He was mentored by and corresponded with the older Carmelite, Teresa of vila. Both his poetry and his studies on the development of the soul are considered the summit of mystical Spanish literature and among the greatest works of all Spanish literature.

~ Saint John of the Cross, The Sum of Perfection

90:Saint John of the Cross gave the following advice: “Enter into your heart and labour in the presence of God who is always present there to help you. Fix your loving attention upon Him without any desire to feel or hear anything of God. ~ Paul Brunton
91:Do not let your "eye" be drawn by the false "beacon lamps" -of wealth, or position, or fame, or possessions. Be vigilant over your will and desires, for these are the corrupt forces that dwell within, and keep you from living free. ~ Saint John of the Cross
92:The divine awakening produces in the soul of the perfect a flame of love which is a participate of that living flame which is the Holy Spirit Himself...this is the operation of the Holy Spirit in the soul that is transformed in love. ~ Saint John of the Cross
93:However softly we speak, God is so close to us that he can hear us; nor do we need wings to go in search of him, but merely to seek solitude and contemplate him within ourselves, without being surprised to find such a good Guest there. ~ Saint John of the Cross
94:God has to work in the soul in secret and in darkness because if we fully knew what was happening, and what Mystery, transformation, God and Grace will eventually ask of us, we would either try to take charge or stop the whole process. ~ Saint John of the Cross,
95:Live in faith and hope, though it be in darkness, for in this darkness God protects the soul. Cast your care upon God for you are His and He will not forget you. Do not think that He is leaving you alone, for that would be to wrong Him. ~ Saint John of the Cross
96:By welcoming a marginalized person whose body is wounded and by welcoming the sinner whose soul is wounded, we put our credibility as Christians on the line. Let us always remember the words of Saint John of the Cross: “In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone. ~ Pope Francis
97:The eternal spring is hidden in this living bread for our life's sake, although it is night. It is here calling out to creatures; and they satisfy their thirst, although in darkness, because it is night. This living spring that I long for, I see in this bread of life, although it is night. ~ Saint John of the Cross
98:The conditions of a solitary bird are five: The first, that it flies to the highest point; The Second, that it does not suffer for company, not even of its own kind; The Third, that it aims its beak to the skies; The Fourth, that it does not have a definite color; The Fifth, that it sings very softly. ~ Saint John of the Cross
99:The centre of the soul is God; and, when the soul has attained to Him according to the whole capacity of its being, which is the strength and virtue of the soul, it will have reached the last and the deep centre of the soul, which will be when with all its powers it loves and understands and enjoys God. ~ Saint John of the Cross
100:For true devotion must issue from the heart, and consist in the truth and substances alone of what is represented by spiritual things; all the rest is affection and attachment proceeding from imperfection; and in order that one may pass to any kind of perfection it is necessary for such desires to be killed. ~ Saint John of the Cross
101:Would that men might come at last to see that it is quite impossible to reach the thicket of the riches and wisdom of God except by first entering the thicket of much suffering, in such a way that the soul finds there its consolation and desire. The soul that longs for divine wisdom chooses first, and in truth, to enter the thicket of the cross. ~ Saint John of the Cross
102:I have said this to explain the stanza that follows, in which the soul replies to those who call in question its holy tranquillity, who will have it wholly occupied with outward duties, that its light may shine before the world: these persons have no conception of the fibres and the unseen root whence the sap is drawn, and which nourish the fruit. ~ Saint John of the Cross
103:Love consists not in feeling great things but in having great detachment and in suffering for the Beloved. The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of Divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly. ~ Saint John of the Cross
104:When a soul has advanced so far on the spiritual road as to be lost to all the natural methods of communing with God; when it seeks Him no longer by meditation, images, impressions, nor by any other created ways, or representations of sense, but only by rising above them all, in the joyful communion with Him by faith and love, then it may be said to have found God of a truth, because it has truly lost itself as to all that is not God, and also as to its own self. ~ Saint John of the Cross
105:Born of the limitless love flooding from them both, the Father sang words of celebration to the Son, Words of such sweet delight none can truly know. In his solitude the Son rejoiced, whispered as they were for him alone. Here, though, is the sum of what in secret was said: -- "Nothing, my Son, satisfies me, save your company. When a thing is sweet, through you alone do I taste it. The more of you I savor, the more do I smile. "What is unlike you, is flavorless to me. You alone are my joy, life of my life! "You are the fire of my fire, my knowing. You are the form of my substance. In you am I well pleased. "Whoever gives his love to you, my Son, to him I give myself. Him I fill with the love I feel for you just for making you beloved, my Beloved."

~ Saint John of the Cross, On the Communion of the Three Persons (from Romance on the Gospel)

106:O love's living flame, so softly do you sear the deepest center of my soul! Now that you no longer shy away, end this game, I beg of you, today: Rip open the veil separating us in this sweet rendezvous! O tender burn! O burning boon! O gentle hand! O delicate caress, that infers eternal life and renders all debts paid! Killing, death into life you have made! O beacons of fire, in whose splendor the blind, dark deep grottoes of the senses, with strange and stately art, warm and enlighten, and win my love! How tenderly is your memory cherished in my breast, where you alone reside and in secret rest: Here I taste in your perfumed breath goodness a-flood with glory-- How gracefully you've won my love! [2652.jpg] -- from The Longing in Between: Sacred Poetry from Around the World (A Poetry Chaikhana Anthology), Edited by Ivan M. Granger

~ Saint John of the Cross, Loves Living Flame

107:Without a place and with a place to rest -- living darkly with no ray of light -- I burn my self away. My soul -- no longer bound -- is free from the creations of the world; above itself it rises hurled into a life of ecstasy, leaning only on God. The world will therefore clarify at last what I esteem of highest grace: my soul revealing it can rest without a place and with a place. Although I suffer a dark night in mortal life, I also know my agony is slight, for though I am in darkness without light, a clear heavenly life I know; for love gives power to my life, however black and blind my day, to yield my soul, and free of strife to rest -- living darkly with no ray. Love can perform a wondrous labor which I have learned internally, and all the good or bad in me takes on a penetrating savor, changing my soul so it can be consumed in a delicious flame. I feel it in me as a ray; and quickly killing every trace of light -- I burn my self away. [1508.jpg] -- from To Touch the Sky: Poems of Mystical, Spiritual & Metaphysical Light, Translated by Willis Barnstone

~ Saint John of the Cross, Without a Place and With a Place

108:How well I know that flowing spring in black of night. The eternal fountain is unseen. How well I know where she has been in black of night. I do not know her origin. None. Yet in her all things begin in black of night. I know that nothing is so fair and earth and firmament drink there in black of night. I know that none can wade inside to find her bright bottomless tide in black of night. Her shining never has a blur; I know that all light comes from her in black of night. I know her streams converge and swell and nourish people, skies and hell in black of night. The stream whose birth is in this source I know has a gigantic force in black of night. The stream from but these two proceeds yet neither one, I know, precedes in black of night. The eternal fountain is unseen in living bread that gives us being in black of night. She calls on all mankind to start to drink her water, though in dark, for black is night. O living fountain that I crave, in bread of life I see her flame in black of night. [1508.jpg] -- from To Touch the Sky: Poems of Mystical, Spiritual & Metaphysical Light, Translated by Willis Barnstone

~ Saint John of the Cross, The Fountain

109:Full of hope I climbed the day while hunting the game of love, and soared so high, high above that I at last caught my prey. In order to seize the game -- the divine love in the sky -- I had to fly so high, high I floated unseen and became lost in that dangerous day; and so my flight fell short of height -- yet so high was my love that I at last caught my prey. Dazzled and stunned by light as I rose nearer the sun, my greatest conquest was won in the very black of night. Yet since love opened my way I leapt dark, blindly above and was so high, near my love, that at last I caught my prey. In this most exalted quest the higher I began to soar the lower I felt -- more sore and broken and depressed. I said: None can seize the prey! and groveled so low, so low that high, higher did I go, and at last I caught my prey. By strange reckoning I saw a thousand flights in one flight; for hope of heavenly light is achieved by hoping now. I hoped only for this way and was right to wait for love, and climbed so high, high above that at last I caught my prey. [1508.jpg] -- from To Touch the Sky: Poems of Mystical, Spiritual & Metaphysical Light, Translated by Willis Barnstone

~ Saint John of the Cross, Full of Hope I Climbed the Day

110:(Songs of the soul delighted at having reached the high state of perfection, the union with God, by way of spiritual negation.) On a darkened night, Anxious, by love inflamed, -- O happy chance! -- Unnoticed, I took flight, My house at last at peace and quiet. Safe, disguised by the night, By the secret ladder I took flight, -- O happy chance! -- Cloaked by darkness, I scaled the height, My house at last at peace and quiet. On that blessed night, In secret, and seen by none, None in sight, I saw with no other guide or light, But the one burning in my heart bright. This guide, this light, Brighter than the midday sun, Led me to the waiting One I knew so well -- my delight! To a place with none in sight. O night! O guide! O night more loving than the dawn! O night that joined The lover with the Beloved; Transformed, the lover into the Beloved drawn! Upon my flowered breast, For him alone kept fair, There he slept, There I caressed, There the cedars gave us air. I drank the turret's cool air, Spreading playfully his hair. And his hand, so serene, Cut my throat. Drained Of senses, I dropped unaware. Lost to myself and yet remaining, Inclined so only the Beloved I spy. All has ceased, all rests, Even my cares, even I; Lost among the lilies, there I die. [2597.jpg] -- from Real Thirst: Poetry of the Spiritual Journey, by Ivan M. Granger

~ Saint John of the Cross, Dark Night

111:Well I know the fountain that runs and flows, though it is night! This eternal fountain is hidden deep. Well I know where it has its spring, Though it is night! In this life's dark night, Faith has taught where this cold fountain lies, Though it is night! Its origin I cannot know, it has none, And I know all origins come from it, Though it is night! And I know there can be nothing more fair, The heavens and earth drink there, Though it is night! And I know it has no bed, And I know no one can cross its depths, Though it is night! Its clarity is never clouded, And I know all light shines from it, Though it is night! I know her streams swell so abundantly, They water people, heaven and even hell, Though it is night! The current born of this fountain I know to be wide and mighty, Though it is night! And from these two another stream flows, And I know neither comes before, Though it is night! I know Three in only one water live, And each the other feeds, Though it is night! This eternal fountain is hiding from sight Within this living bread to give us life, Though it is night! He calls all creatures to this light, And of this water they drink, though in the dark, Though it is night! This living fountain I desire, I see it here within this living bread, Though it is night! [bk1sm.gif] -- from St. John of the Cross: Alchemist of the Soul: His Life, His Poetry (Bilingual), His Prose, by Antonio T. de Nicolas

~ Saint John of the Cross, Song of the Soul That Delights in Knowing God by Faith

112:I entered the unknown, and there I remained unknowing, all knowledge transcended. Where I entered I knew not, but seeing myself there, not knowing where, great things then made themselves known. What I sensed I cannot say, for I remained unknowing, all knowledge transcended. In this peace and purity was perfect knowledge. In profoundest solitude I understood with absolute clarity something so secret that I was left stammering, all knowledge transcended. So deep was I within, so absorbed, transported, that all senses fled, and outer awareness fell away. My spirit received the gift of unknowing knowing, all knowledge transcended. He who reaches this realm loses himself, for all he once knew now is beneath his notice, and his mind so expands that he remains unknowing, all knowledge transcended. And the higher he rises the less he knows: That is the dark cloud that shines in the night. The one who knows this always remains unknowing, all knowledge transcended. This knowing by unknowing is of such exalted power, that the disputations of the learned fail to grasp it, for their knowledge does not reach to knowing by unknowing, all knowledge transcended. Of such supreme perfection is this knowledge that no faculty or method of mind can comprehend it; but he who conquers himself with this unknowing knowing, will always transcend. And if you are ready to receive it, this sum of all knowledge is discovered in the deepest ecstasy of the Divine Essence. Goodness and grace grant us this unknowing, all knowledge transcended.

~ Saint John of the Cross, I Entered the Unknown

113:I live yet do not live in me, am waiting as my life goes by, and die because I do not die. No longer do I live in me, and without God I cannot live; to him or me I cannot give my self, so what can living be? A thousand deaths my agony waiting as my life goes by, dying because I do not die. This life I live alone I view as robbery of life, and so it is a constant death -- with no way out until I live with you. God, hear me, what I say is true: I do not want this life of mine, and die because I do not die. Being so removed from you I say what kind of life can I have here but death so ugly and severe and worse than any form of pain? I pity me -- and yet my fate is that I must keep up this lie, and die because I do not die. The fish taken out of the sea is not without a consolation: his dying is of brief duration and ultimately brings relief. Yet what convulsive death can be as bad as my pathetic life? The more I live the more I die. When I begin to feel relief on seeing you in the sacrament, I sink in deeper discontent, deprived of your sweet company. Now everything compels my grief: I want -- yet can't -- see you nearby, and die because I do not die. Although I find my pleasure, Sir, in hope of someday seeing you, I see that I can lose you too, which makes my pain doubly severe, and so I live in darkest fear, and hope, wait as life goes by, dying because I do not die. Deliver me from death, my God, and give me life; now you have wound a rope about me; harshly bound I ask you to release the cord. See how I die to see you, Lord, and I am shattered where I lie, dying because I do not die. My death will trigger tears in me, and I shall mourn my life: a day annihilated by the way I fail and sin relentlessly. O Father God, when will it be that I can say without a lie: I live because I do not die?

~ Saint John of the Cross, I Live Yet Do Not Live in Me

114:(Poem with a Divine Intention) Not for all the beauty will I ever be lost, but for I-know-not-what that by fortune I may reach. The taste of what is finite, Goes only as far As to weary the appetite And destroy the taste; Thus not for sweetness Will I ever be lost, But for I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. The generous heart Never cares to stop Where it is easy to cross, But tries where it is hard; Nothing satisfies him, And with faith he climbs so high, That he tastes I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. He who is pierced by love, Or touched by the divine, Has his taste so changed That to all taste he is dead; As someone may leave The food he sees when he is sick, And craves for I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. Do not be surprised That taste be thus changed, For the cause of this evil Is alien to all the rest; Thus every creature Sees itself estranged, And tastes I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. For as soon as the will is touched from above, It cannot be satisfied But with the divine; Its beauty being such That only faith may show it, For it tastes of I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. Tell me if for such a lover, You will feel any pain, For he finds no pleasure Among created things; Alone, with no figure or shape, Without company or even memory, Except the taste of I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. Do not think that the soul, That is worth much more, Finds joy and happiness In what on earth gives taste; It is beyond beauty, In what is, was or will be, That it tastes I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. Whoever wants to advance Would better use care In what is left to gain Than in what he has already won; And thus aiming for the heights, I will always try For that I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. What comes through the senses And may here be understood And whatever may be learned, Even though very high, Not for all that beauty Will I ever be lost, But for that I-know-not-what That by fortune I may reach. -- Finis.

  In the sixth mansion, Lover and Beloved, butterfly and God, soul and Uncreate Spirit, "see each other" for extended periods of time. Whereas the absorption of the Fifth Mansion might last up to a half-hour, various types of absorption here last a day or several days, she says (even if the cessation itself is still shortlived). The soul is "so completely absorbed and the understanding so completely transported-for as long as a day, or even for several days-that the soul seems incapable of grasping anything that does not awaken the will to love; to this it is fully awake, while asleep as regards all attachment. . . ."30
  But each new stage of growth, we have seen, introduces new types of possible pathology, and so it is with the little butterfly. Many people think that the famous "Dark Night of the Soul," a phrase introduced by Teresa's friend and collaborator Saint John of the Cross, is that terrible dark period before one finds Uncreate Spirit. But not so; the
  Dark Night occurs in that period after one has tasted Universal Being but before one is established in it, for one has now seen Paradise . . . and seen it fade.
