"A long time ago, in Portugal, I had become aware of the quality of the texts by John of the Cross, in a library where I used to work. In Louvain I acquired the bulk of his Complete Works. With my eyes on his texts, I would read beyond the words, and I don't know how or why his textual impulse breathed on The Book of Communities."
Maria Gabriela Llansol
