“The road is narrow. He who wishes to travel it more easily must cast off all things and use the cross as his cane. In other words, he must be truly resolved to suffer willingly for the love of God in all things.” (St. John of the Cross, d. 1591)


The Memorial of St. John of the Cross, Priest and Doctor of the Church (A.D. 1542 – 1591) is December 14.
