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

14 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and held by 158 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
