QUOTE (John of the Cross)

December 14, 2015

john of the cross“God has to work in the soul in secret and in darkness because if we fully knew what was happening, and what Mystery, transformation, God and Grace will eventually ask of us, we would either try to take charge or stop the whole process.”

“In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human successes, but on how well we have loved.”
~ John of the Cross

In honor of John of the Cross, a Carmelite friar and a priest, who died on this day in 1591.
