Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591

"Never before has anyone spoken like this one"

Saturday of the Fourth week of Lent

Commentary of the day 
Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591), Carmelite, Doctor of the Church 
Ascent of Mount Carmel, II, ch. 22 (trans. ©ICS publications rev.)
"Never before has anyone spoken like this one"

God could answer: “My Son is my entire locution and response; vision and revelation, which I have already spoken, answered, manifested, and revealed to you by giving him to you as a brother, companion, master, ransom, and reward... 'This is my beloved Son in I am well pleased, hear him' (Mt 17,5).

If you desire me to answer with a word of comfort, behold my Son subject to me and to others out of love for me, and afflicted, and you will see how much he answers you. If you desire me to declare some secret truths or events to you, fix your eyes only on him and you will discern hidden in him the most secret mysteries and wisdom, and wonders of God, as my Apostle proclaims: “In the Son of God are hidden all the treasures of the wisdom and knowledge of God” (Col 2,3). These treasures of wisdom and knowledge will be for you far more sublime, delightful, and advantageous than what you want to know. The apostle, therefore, gloried, affirming that he had acted as though he knew no other than “Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1Cor 2,2). And if you should seek other divine or corporeal visions and revelations, behold him, become human, and you will find more than you imagine. For the apostle Paul also says: “In Christ all the fullness of the divinity dwells bodily” (Col 2,9).”

One should not, then, inquire of God in this manner, nor is it necessary for God to speak any more...: there is no more faith to reveal, nor will there ever be.
