Oh, living flame of love That tenderly woundest my soul in its deepest centre, Since thou art no longer oppressive, perfect me now if it be thy will, Break the web of this sweet encounter.

Oh, living flame of love That tenderly woundest my soul in its deepest centre, Since thou art no longer oppressive, perfect me now if it be thy will, Break the web of this sweet encounter. 2. Oh, sweet burn! Oh, delectable wound! Oh, soft hand! Oh, delicate touch That savours of eternal life and pays every debt! In slaying, thou hast changed death into life. 3. Oh, lamps of fire, In whose splendours the deep caverns of sense Which were dark and blind with strange brightness Give heat and light together to their Beloved!

I love how humble St. John of the Cross is in writing this prose in explanation for a benefactor. I know I could use some help in understanding even the most fundamental poetry. No one seems to care for the finer things in life anymore. A very enjoyable translation.

Book by John of the Cross
  • St John of the Cross proves my hypothesis, that we are not caring for those with dementia, or even demons, but for those experiencing dark nights which are actually just blinding light. I watch the one I care for become enraptured in spiritual wisdom, inspired and peaceful, ascending the steps to heaven. When the steps seem to descend, I await the next appearance of the "living flame of love" and work to reflect it myself.

  • I am a discalced Carmelite (3rd order) and presently studying St. John of the Cross. Studying his writings has given to me a deeper sense of who he was and his great love of the Lord. Don't let anyone tell you his works are hard to understand, read for yourself. It really does take more than one time to read. Each time you will get a new prospective, just like any book relating to the divine.

  • Particular to this edition: The print is so tiny that, at age 41, I might need to buy a magnifying glass to read this. The font must be about 8 or 9 pt. I think I will stick to my kindle edition, although I love this spiritual masterpiece and was hoping to have a nice paperback to have on hand.

  • Very enlightening. One can learn to treat people with spiritual love.

  • This is another great book by St. John of the Cross. for all contemplative.

  • Very tiny print. Need a magnifying glass to read it.

  • John of the Cross (1542-1591) was a Spanish mystic, Carmelite friar and priest, who was---along with Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582)---a founder of the Discalced Carmelites. He wrote many famous books of mysticism, such as Dark Night of the Soul : A Classic in the Literature of Mysticism,Ascent of Mount Carmel,Spiritual Canticle, and Counsels of Light and Love.

    He suggests that "souls can have no peception of their darkness until they come near to the Divine light, and only when the darkness has been driven out is the soul illumined and able to see the light... For, to sight that is weak and not clear, infinite light is total darkness and the faculty suffers deprivation through excess of sense." (Pg. 46)

    He notes that "there are so few that attain to this lofty state... not because God is pleased that there should be few raised to this high spiritual state... but rather because He finds few vessels in whom he can perform so high and lofty a work." (Pg. 72) He observes that "the supernatural cannot be received in a natural way, nor can it have aught to do with it." (Pg. 104) Later, he adds that for things "so interior and spiritual... words commonly fail to describe them, since spirit transcends sense and it is with difficulty that anything can be said of the substance of the spirit if one have not deep spirituality." (Pg. 149)

    He laments that the soul, being itself inclined to sensible enjoyment... is very easily led to cling to such kinds of knowledge and such delights, and withdraws itself from the solitude wherein God works... It is a great pity that it cannot realize how, for the sake of one mouthful, it is preventing itself from feeding wholly upon God Himself..." (Pg. 122)

    John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila are essential reading for anyone even marginally interested in Christian mysticism.
