Prayer for the Feast of St. John of the Cross, Priest and Doctor of the Church


Join us in prayer today!

The virtuous soul that is alone and without a master is like a lone burning coal; it will grow colder rather than hotter. Those who fall alone remain alone in their fall, and they value their souls little since they entrust it to themselves alone. If you do not fear falling alone, do you presume that you will rise up alone? Consider how much more can be accomplished by two together than by one alone. — St. John of the Cross
