Availability: In stock

Product Description
St John of the Cross (1542-1591), Doctor of the Church, poet, spiritual theologian, founder (with St Teresa of Avila) of the Discalced Carmelites. Book One of the 'Ascent' discusses the mortification of all voluntary, inordinate appetites when they are contrary to the perfect love of God. Books Two and Three treat the journey of faith as the active purification of the spirit. The soul must walk steadily in the 'darkness' of faith, depriving itself of everything contradictory to the love of God in order to achieve union with God.
