Fr. Thomas Dubay’s TV series, St. John of the Cross: The Great Exchange is available free from EWTN this month, on their podcast page.

Whether you’re just studying St. John of the Cross for school or using him as a guide to prayer life, you really can’t do better than Fr. Dubay. He’s a good professor and priest in one, with a real commitment to truth.

Anyway, you might want to download this show, and you might want to take notes.

And of course, once Fr. Dubay gets you excited about St. John of the Cross, you might also want to download my public domain audiobooks of The Ascent of Mount Carmel and The Dark Night of the Soul. 🙂
