FEAST OF ST. JOHN OF THE CROSS, PRIEST & DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH: 14 DECEMBER

14 Dec

JOHN OF THE CROSS

Prayer: Father, we like to take time, now and then, to thank You for some of the brilliant lights You caused to shine in this world. We are grateful to You, for the life of St. John of the Cross. We know of his suffering, his study of scripture, his preaching and writing, but most of all his prayer that has been an inspiration for so many people in his own time and through the centuries. We thank You for him, because the warmth of his love is felt in our own lives. Just by reading the words of his burning heart, we are led to praise You more, to be more serious about our prayer, to long more ardently to be You. Give us the gift of longing for the day when we shall be present totally with You, and in the company of all Your saints. Amen. 

The prayer is taken from Fr. Killian Speckner OFMConv., THE PRAYERS OF FATHER KILLIAN – A Franciscan Missionary’s Guide to Daily Devotion, Paraclete Press, 1986.
