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.
