St John of the Cross: Dark Night of the Soul

Updated: Sep 25, 2021

The newest piece for the "City of God" series is a depiction of the Spanish mystic, St. John of the Cross. The saint stands in front of Mount Carmel, and holds in his left hand a scroll with the Spanish words "sin otra luz ni guia". This is a line from his poem, "Dark Night of the Soul". This video features the first five stanzas of "Dark Night of the Soul", read by Ed Humpal for Librivox. Audio of the full poem, as well as St John's book of the same name, can be found here: (All Librivox recordings are in the public domain.) SHOW LESS
