St. John of the Cross

At the convent of Caravaca, a new prioress was to be elected. St. John of the Cross said a Mass at the convent for the new mother superior, that she would lead well. During this Mass, a supernatural light enveloped him.

It was seen by nuns who were present at the time. Two of them thought it emanated from the taberncacle, but when St. John turned to face them, they could see the glow radiated from his very face. Another nun, standing at a different angle, observed the same thing.
