  • John became a Carmelite monk, and then later was ordained a priest.
  • He opened the first Discalced Carmelite monastery in Duruelo.
  • Reform caused friction within the order, which led to his imprisonment.
  • While in prison, he wrote some of his finest poetry.
  • Escaping in August 1578, he later won high office in the order, becoming vicar provincial of Andalusia from 1585 to 1587.
  • Near the end of his life, the Discalced Carmelites were again troubled by dissension, and he withdrew to absolute solitude.
