An international Congress on St. John of the Cross in CITeS

With the ending of the cycle of Teresian Congresses (2010-2015) and the Congress on Mercy (2016) which has taken place, the University of Mysticism is undertaking a new project for the diffusion of the spirituality of St. Teresa and St. John by organising a cycle of Congresses dedicated to each of the works of St. John of the Cross.

The cycle of congresses will open with the Ascent of Mount Carmel (4th-10th September 2017). Doctrinally, this book develops a profound vision of man’s path of freedom and of his progressive drawing closer to God, who transforms him. It is a process in which God makes himself known to man, at the same time that a change takes place in man leading from the senses to the spirit. St. John of the Cross wrote this work for the many souls to whom God gives the talent and grace to advance far along the path of union and who get lost because they do not know how to respond to this grace or who have no-one to direct them. A detailed programme of the content and guest speakers will later be made available.
