Patron Saint of Spanish authors

John was born as the third son to a family of weavers in 1542. After being educated at the Jesuits-college, he entered the order of the Carmelites and was later ordained. John was captured by some friars of his order, because he wanted to renew the rules of his order. He was tortured and blamed for false accusations, couldn't attend mass anymore. Fortunately, thanks to the guidance of the Holy Virgin, he escaped to a convent of Theresa of Avila. Later on he became rector of the college in Baeza, the prior of a monastery in Granada. St. John of the Cross is also known for his writings.
