John of the Cross is remembered as one of the great saints, mystics, and Doctors of the Church, whose writings and example have encouraged many on the path to a deeper union with God.  But did you know that he is also celebrated as one of Spain’s greatest poets?  This seminar will offer an opportunity to get acquainted with the beauty and the spiritual nourishment of St. John’s poetry.  We will read and discuss St. John’s poems, both in translation and with attention to the original Spanish, and everyone is welcome no matter how much or how little Spanish you have.  Copies of a bilingual edition of St. John’s poetry, published by Cluny Press, will be provided.
