John of the Cross: God touching us

Wednesday, December 14, 2022
    Feast of John of the Cross, Mystic, Poet, Teacher, 1591
    But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
    —John 14:26 (NIV)
    Sometimes, when the soul least thinks of it, and when it least desires it, God touches it divinely causing certain recollections of Himself.
    ... St. John of the Cross (1542-1591), The Ascent of Mount Carmel, London: Thomas Baker, 1906, p. 208 (see the book)
    See also John 14:26; Ps. 77:11; Matt. 26:74-75; Luke 22:19; John 2:22; 12:16; 1 Cor. 11:23-25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, re-enter my thoughts.
