Description 

Saint John of the Cross was a Spanish Carmelite priest, mystic, and Doctor of the Church. He was a good friend of St. Teresa of Avila, and together, they brought a lot of necessary reform to the Carmelite way of life. His life and writings, such as Dark Night of the Soul, set a powerful example of holiness and prayer for those of us striving to reach heaven. 


This full-color laminated card features an image of Saint John of the Cross and a beautiful prayer by this holy man. It is available in singles or bulk packs of 25.


On the back:


My God, you will not take away what you have given me in your only Son, Jesus Christ. In him, you have given me all that I desire. You will, therefore, no longer delay-- and this is my joy-- provided that I wait for you. So, my heart, why do you delay? Why do you procrastinate? From this moment on you can love your God! Mine are the heavens, mine is the earth and mine the peoples; mine are the just and mine are the sinners; mine are the angels; mine is the mother of God-- God himself is mine, for me-- for mine is Christ and everything is for me.


What do you ask, what do you seek, my soul? Everything is for you and everything is yours! Do not think of yourself as little nor pay attention to the scraps that fall from the table of your Father. Rise on the great day and take your glory in his! Hide yourself in it and be joyful; everything which your heart desires shall be yours.
