Confessor and Doctor

He was born in Fontiveros (Ávila) and professed in the Carmelite Order, whose reform he promoted, together with Saint Teresa of Jesús; and in this great work she passed incredible persecutions and works. Loving the Cross of Christ, he exercised in himself no less austerities than the most distinguished anchorites. Endowed with the highest contemplation, he wrote marvelously in prose and verse about the rise of the soul to union with God, with so much teaching that he has earned the title of Mystical Doctor of the Church. He died in Úbeda, at the age of forty-nine.

V/. Saint John of the Cross.
