SAN GIOVANNI DELLA CROCE (24 June 1542 - 14 December 1591), to the century Juan de Yepes Álvarez, priest, Spanish theologian and poet, co-founder of the Order of Discalced Carmelites. Orphaned of a father at a tender age, raised with the proceeds of the work of his weaver mother, he kept on studying with the most disparate jobs. At the age of 21 he entered the Carmelite Order, and in 1567 he was ordained a priest. He met Teresa D'Avila and was fascinated by his ideas for reform, which he was applying to Carmel with the authorization of Father Rossi, Prior General of the Order. In 1568, after having founded the first convent of Discalced Carmelites in Valladolid, in Duruelo he adapted a farmhouse to the first convent of the Discalced Carmelites and on November 28th, the first Sunday of Advent, he inaugurated the reformed life, taking on the occasion the name of John of the Cross. Adherence to the reform brought him various sufferings, both physical and spiritual, including the unjust imprisonment (for an incorrect attribution of responsibility for an accident in the convent) for more than eight months in the prison of the convent of the Carmelites of Calzati di Toledo , where he suffered abuse and torture, and composed some of his major mystical poems. The commemoration at the time of the press was celebrated on 24 November, the Roman Martyrology of 2001 fixed the liturgical memory on 14 December, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth to heaven). Colored engraving, Italy 1886
