Sixteenth Century Quote of the Week

A thousand graces diffusing
He passed through the groves in haste,
And merely regarding them
As He passed
He clothed them with His beauty.

St. John of the Cross (1542-91)
Spanish mystic and saint

The Spiritual Canticle (1577), Stanza V
Translated by David Lewis
