One paragraph from Ralph Martin’s article:
This experience opened in me a great desire to read all of St. John of the Cross, all of Teresa of Avila, all of Therese the Little Flower and to really understand what they were given by God to teach. As I did so they became the most important guides in my spiritual life.
And then, unexpectedly, I received a telephone call from Franciscan University of Steubenville asking if I was willing to teach a graduate course in theology in the area of evangelization in the summer MA program. I said I’d be interested but was wondering if I could teach John and Teresa instead. They said yes and that began a new and unexpected phase in my life.
