Description
 

In his major work, Ascent of Mount Carmel, the 16th century Spanish poet and mystic, St. John of the Cross, provides a road map for all who seek to make the spiritual journey to union with God. This poem recounts John's passage through the various dark nights of faith on his own journey. Reflecting on the character of a personal union with Christ, found in the surrender of the self, John encourages readers who may be passing through their own times of trial and death to self. He demonstrates how we need to leave behind all worldly ties and appetites in order to achieve “nothing less than transformation in God.” Through his wise counsel, framed in lyric poetry, st. John of the Cross walks with those who yearn to be closer to God and are willing to pass with Him through the Cross to gain the incomparable joy of union with the Beloved.
