Saint John of the Cross


Mary’s Dowry Productions launched a new film, now on the great Saint John of the Cross, “a Spanish mystic, a Catholic Saint, a Carmelite friar and a priest who was born at Fontiveros, Old Castile in 1542. In this film we look at the inspiring life of Saint John who, along with Saint Teresa of Ávila, founded the Discalced Carmelites.
Saint John's devotions, prayers, writings and poetry as well as his studies on the growth of the soul are considered as well as his sufferings, love of the Passion and of the Cross. He was a major figure of the Counter-Reformation. His biography contains a wealth of inspiration relevant for today.
Sacred art, paintings, photographs, a simple costumed visual, scenery, narrative and music combine to present a creative, detailed and devotional film presentation of the life of St. John of the Cross.

This is not a 'movie' produced for entertainment neither is it purely a biographical documentary, this is a creative way to learn the life of St. John of the Cross with visual aids to help the narrative flow”.
