St Monica Catholic Church
St John of the Cross
"The Great Christian Mystic"
Fr William Meninger, OCSO
St. John of the Cross is one of the greatest mystics of the Christian church. In the spirit of St. Thomas Aquinas, he bridges the gap between the medieval and modern era. The teachings of John of the Cross can benefit both the beginner and the experienced travelers on a spiritual journey. Often seen by modern Christians as excessively esoteric and beyond the ken of their experience, St. John will be taught in this workshop in the light of Meninger's book St. John of the Cross for Beginners.
Saint John of the Cross flourished during the mid to late 1500’s and was a major figure of the Counter-Reformation. He was a Spanish mystic, a Roman Catholic saint, a Carmelite friar and a priest. He was also a contemporary of the charismatic St Teresa of Avila and collaborated with her to reform the Carmelite order.
Presented by the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter of Contemplative Outreach.
