Living flame of love by John of the Cross( Book )

12 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because this is one of St. John of the Cross' last poems and the fruit of his mature spirituality, it is written with greater eloquence and ardor, impetuosity and lyrical fervor than his former works and tells of a love more completely refined and of a soul which has experienced nearly perfect union with God. Written in four stanzas, with a commentary on each stanze, the poem begins by describing a soul which seeks a closer intimacy with God. Through purgation of sense and spirit, this aspiring soul is now engaged in such profound contemplation of the Divine Love that it has already received a savor of eternal life; and this foretaste of the joy of heaven inspires it to a lyrical praise of the Trinity
Spiritual canticle by John of the Cross( Book )

20 editions published between 1909 and 2012 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Spiritual Canticle St. John of the Cross tries to explain the mystical process that follows the soul until it reaches its union with God. In order to get this, the poet uses an allegory: the search of the husband (Christ) by the wife (the human soul). The wife feels itself wounded by love, and this makes it to start the search of the Beloved (el Amado); the soul asks everywhere for him in despair until they finally get together in the solitude of the garden (Paradise)
