QuotationIn regard to St. John of the Cross, I think we have here some paperback editions of his main works and I have asked them to be sent to you. I might also refer you to the life of St. John of the Cross, in French, by Père Bruno de Jesus-Marie, which has some interesting pages on the possible influence of Sufism in the mysticism of St. John of the Cross. References will lead you further along these lines.
