"A Spiritual Director For All Time For All"
St. John of The Cross (15442-1591)

We have available now for the first time in this third millennium the "Collected Works" of probably one of the most brilliant, world-renowned, interpreters of Holy Scripture and Spiritual Directors who ever lived* ( Refer to: "Collected Works of St. John of the Cross"; Edition, 1991, 814 pages. Publisher: Institute of Carmelite Studies, Washington D.C.). However, Johnís style of prose writing is difficult to penetrate, and requires three or four readings before his brilliance comes shining through. ó In order to gently ease the readerís way into undertaking a study of his "works", I devoted six years to preparing a 15-page booklet summarizing Johnís strategy for fighting and winning lifeís warfare against the World, the Flesh, and the Devil or Satan, thereby achieving through pure contemplation - by the grace of God - the mystical union or marriage of love with God, before departing this Earth - The greatest and most magnificent achievement possible to achieve for anyone upon this earth.

John drew from three sources for his spiritual direction**: First and foremost from holy Scripture ó For he considered God,   its true author. The sciences and his life experiences, while important, were, comparatively speaking, of very minor secondary importance. John, paradoxically, difficult as his prose style of writing was, was a master of writing a soaring, mystical, hauntingly beautiful majestic poetry which he uses effectively throughout his "Works". He was declared the "Patron of Spanish Poets" in 1952. Also referred to as the "Mystical Doctor", he was declared a Doctor of the universal Church in 1926 (335 years after his death).

*Pope John Paul II, who wrote his doctoral dissertation on the spirituality of St. John of the Cross, stated that St. John of the Cross was a spiritual director for our contemporary times, namely, in this third millennium period.

**Next to Holy Scripture, John's other very importan source was the Summa Theologica of the brilliant Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas.
