It’s time to add another stamp to your spiritual passport! Join Angela Sealana and Jason Nunez as they dive into the life of Carmelite priest and Doctor of the Church, St. John of the Cross, and spiritually travel to his tomb, in Segovia, Spain. Joining Angela and Jason this week, is their guest, Fr. Gregory Ross, OCD is a member of the Discalced Carmelite Friars, and pastor and rector of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower, located in San Antonio, Texas.
On today’s journey, you will:
- Hear about the Tomb of mystic & Carmelite saint, John of the Cross… and an anecdote about why it may not be the best reflection of his life!
- We’ll hear about why St. John of the Cross is an important figure in history & in the Catholic faith
- And we’ll be encouraged & inspired in our daily lives by the spirituality of St. John of the Cross.
