St. John of the Cross - December 14
This Carmelite priest was a mystic, poet, and reformer. His actions and beliefs saw him ostracized at times, leaving him isolated, but closer to God. His struggles actually brought more power and understanding to his work, reminding him that in life it's necessary to accept the cross and unite yourself with God. His life is a lesson to children that whatever hardships they may face, the Lord will be at their side.
