One-Day Workshop

St John of the Cross

Scholastic, Philosopher and Theologian


Fr William Meninger, OCSO

St Monica Catholic Church
Family Center, Room 201
9933 Midway Road
Dallas, TX 75220

9:30 AM to 3:00 PM

St. John of the Cross is one of the greatest mystics of the Christian church.  In the spirit of St. Thomas Aquinas, he bridges the gap between the medieval and modern era.  The teachings of John of the Cross can benefit both the beginner and the experienced travelers on a spiritual journey.  Often seen by modern Christians as excessively esoteric and beyond the ken of their experience, St. John will be taught in this workshop in the light of my book St. John of the Cross for Beginners.

Saint John of the Cross flourished during the mid to late 1500ís and was a major figure of the Counter-Reformation. He was a Spanish mystic, a Roman Catholic saint, a Carmelite friar and a priest. He was also a contemporary of the charismatic St Teresa of Avila and collaborated with her to reform the Carmelite order.

John of the Cross is known for his writings. Both his poetry and his studies on the growth of the soul are considered the summit of mystical Spanish literature and one of the peaks of all Spanish literature. He was canonized as a saint in 1726 by Pope Benedict XIII. He is one of the thirty-six Doctors of the Church.

This conference may be Fr William's last visit to Dallas.  He expects to sharply curtail his future traveling schedule.
