Was St. John of the Cross a Methodist?

But those who at this time are going on to perfection proceed very differently and with quite another temper of spirit; for they progress by means of humility and are greatly edified, not only thinking naught of their own affairs, but having very little satisfaction with themselves; they consider all others as far better, and usually have a holy envy of them, and an eagerness to serve God as they do.[1. Saint John of the Cross (2012-10-03). Dark Night of the Soul (Illustrated Classics) (Kindle Locations 532-534). Catholic Way Publishing. Kindle Edition]

Well now… I guess he was… Just like Jesus.
