Цитаты Иоанн Креста

„On a dark night, Kindled in love with yearnings — oh, happy chance! —
I went forth without being observed, My house being now at rest.
In darkness and secure, By the secret ladder, disguised — oh, happy chance! —
In darkness and in concealment, My house being now at rest.“

—  John of the Cross
Dark Night of the Soul, En una noche oscura, con ansias, en amores inflamada, ¡oh dichosa ventura!, salí sin ser notada, estando ya mi casa sosegada; One dark night, fired with love's urgent longings — ah, the sheer grace! — I went out unseen, my house being now all stilled. In darkness, and secure, by the secret ladder, disguised, — ah, the sheer grace! — in darkness and concealment, my house being now all stilled. Variant translation by Kieran Kavanaugh and Otilio Rodriguez (1991) Upon a darkened night the flame of love was burning in my breast And by a lantern bright I fled my house while all in quiet rest. Shrouded by the night and by the secret stair I quickly fled. The veil concealed my eyes while all within lay quiet as the dead Variant adapted for music by Loreena McKennitt (1994)

„Hence the love of God in the pure and simple soul is almost continually in act.“

—  John of the Cross
The Sayings of Light and Love, Context: Souls will be unable to reach perfection who do not strive to be content with having nothing, in such fashion that their natural and spiritual desire is satisfied with emptiness; for this is necessary in order to reach the highest tranquility and peace of spirit. Hence the love of God in the pure and simple soul is almost continually in act.

„In a word, it is for this love that we are all created.“

—  John of the Cross
Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom, Notes to the Stanzas, Context: When the soul, then, in any degree possesses the spirit of solitary love, we must not interfere with it. We should inflict a grievous wrong upon it, and upon the Church also, if we were to occupy it, were it only for a moment, in exterior or active duties, however important they might be. When God Himself adjures all not to waken it from its love, who shall venture to do so, and be blameless? In a word, it is for this love that we are all created. Let those men of zeal, who think by their preaching and exterior works to convert the world, consider that they would be much more edifying to the Church, and more pleasing unto God — setting aside the good example they would give if they would spend at least one half their time in prayer, even though they may have not attained to the state of unitive love. Note to Stanza 28 part 3

„You will say that I am lost;
That, being enamoured,
I lost myself; and yet was found.“

—  John of the Cross
Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom, Context: If, then, on the common land I am no longer seen or found, You will say that I am lost; That, being enamoured, I lost myself; and yet was found. ~ 29

„Since Thou hast regarded me,
Grace and beauty hast Thou given me.“

—  John of the Cross
Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom, Context: Despise me not, For if I was swarthy once Thou canst regard me now; Since Thou hast regarded me, Grace and beauty hast Thou given me. ~ 33

„When Thou didst regard me,
Thine eyes imprinted in me Thy grace:“

—  John of the Cross
Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom, Context: When Thou didst regard me, Thine eyes imprinted in me Thy grace: For this didst Thou love me again, And thereby mine eyes did merit To adore what in Thee they saw. ~ 32

„The little white dove
Has returned to the ark with the bough“

—  John of the Cross
Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom, Context: The little white dove Has returned to the ark with the bough; And now the turtle-dove Its desired mate On the green banks has found. ~ 34

„My soul is occupied,
And all my substance in His service;“

—  John of the Cross
Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom, Context: My soul is occupied, And all my substance in His service; Now I guard no flock, Nor have I any other employment: My sole occupation is love. ~ 28

„All ceased and I abandoned myself, Leaving my cares forgotten among the lilies.“

—  John of the Cross
Dark Night of the Soul, Context: I remained, lost in oblivion; My face I reclined on the Beloved. All ceased and I abandoned myself, Leaving my cares forgotten among the lilies. I abandoned and forgot myself, laying my face on my Beloved; all things ceased; I went out from myself, leaving my cares forgotten among the lilies. Variant translation by Kieran Kavanaugh and Otilio Rodriguez (1991)
