Reader Remarks: As many fools as there are in the Catholic faith, one cannot deny that it has produced some of the world"s greatest mystics: Bl. Henry Suso, St. Teresa of Avila, Archbishop Francois Fenelon, Bl. Ruysbroeck, Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa, St. Catherine of Genoa, Thomas Kempis, St. Augustine, the writers of the Theologica Germanica and the Cloud of Unknowing, St. Catherine of Siena, Thomas Merton, and of course, St. John of the Cross! -- a man that this book of his collected works exults in all his holiness and insight. A central theme I"ve noticed throughout the collected works of St. John of the Cross is his insightful circumspection, marked by a humility which few people ever attain to. With regards to this subtle element of his spiritual genius, this book is certainly a "safe" read in every way imaginable, for we are being guided by a master. After reading this, I can honestly say that few people among the Christian Mystics could ever rival St. John in terms of discernment and mystical theology.
