Here is something for your blooper reel. You kept conflating St. John of the Cross with St. John of Avila. St. John of the Cross of course has long been a Doctor of the Church, though St. John of Avila was a spiritual director to the other St. John and Teresa of Avila along with other saints.

I knew something was amiss! I’ll have to get on Fr. Ryan, the shownote-smith! But, totally mea culpa for not catching it! Glad we’ve got some fact-checkers (well, a listener…I’m happy to have a listener. You do know we just do this show for you, right Jeff?)
