Description: January 1999. St John of the Cross, 1542-1591. This window illustrates the first of the saints’ great poems, Dark Night. It shows the lover, in Carmelite garb, leaving his house in darkness, throwing all his cares among the lilies, setting out on the mystical journey. The poem comes to life amid vivid colours which describe the light which burned in his heart amid the night more lovely than the dawn. St John of the Cross ranks among the greatest of the Spanish poets.
