Oil Dedicated to St John of the Cross 2 (Doctor of the Church)

St John of the Cross 2 (Doctor of the Church) from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.

Saint John of the Cross, known as the Doctor of the Church, was a Spanish mystic, poet, and theologian who lived during the 16th century. Born Juan de Yepes y Álvarez on June 24, 1542, in Fontiveros, Spain, he embarked on a spiritual journey that would profoundly influence Christian mysticism.

At a young age, John joined the Carmelite Order, a religious community known for its emphasis on prayer and contemplation. Inspired by the teachings of Saint Teresa of Avila, he sought a deeper union with God and embraced a life of poverty, humility, and self-denial. His dedication to a life of profound spirituality earned him the name “John of the Cross.”

Recognized for his profound spiritual insights. Pope Pius XI declared St. John of the Cross a Doctor of the Church in 1926. His teachings emphasized the importance of detachment, self-emptying, and surrendering to God’s will as the means to achieve divine union. St. John’s legacy continues to guide spiritual seekers and his writings remain a source of inspiration. For those yearning for a deeper connection with the Divine.

St. John of the Cross passed away on December 14, 1591, in Úbeda, Spain. Leaving behind a rich spiritual heritage and a testament to the transformative power of a life wholly devoted to God.

Prayer:

St. Teresa, your teachings have illuminated the path of faith for many. Intercede for us, that we may find strength in adversity, courage in challenges, and humility in seeking God’s will. May your example inspire us to deepen our connection with the Divine through contemplation and prayer. As we celebrate your legacy, guide us on our spiritual journey that we may experience the transformative power of God’s love in our lives. Amen.

Scripture:

“Hear me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry. Hear my prayer—let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right.”

Psalm 17:1
