November 24 -- St John of the Cross

This is the feast of St John of the Cross in the traditional Roman Rite. The Pauline Rite honours him later in December.

The collect for his feast:
O God! who hast made Saint John, Thy confessor and our father, an ardent lover of perfect self-denial, and of the Cross, grant that, by following ever in his footsteps, we may reach eternal glory. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
