Publisher's Summary

"I remained, lost in oblivion; My face I reclined on the Beloved. All ceased and I abandoned myself, Leaving my cares forgotten among the lillies." Thus writes 16th century Spanish poet and mystic, St. John of the Cross. In this, his third work, the author reflects on the nature of a personal union with Christ, found in the abandonment of self.

    "read!"

    a great spiritual book, StJohn is methodical and brief in his treatment of relayong necessary truths. the speaker helped a lot and was enjoyable to listen to. the book was never finished by St John but it was great for what he did write and is completely worthwhile to read. to grow in the spiritual life, this is certainly a great place to start once one wishes to choose Him for His own sake and not His favours

    "A great gift from one of THE greatest Saints!!!"

    I'm just beginning my journey to Carmel. I did have some difficulty understanding this work. I'm glad I listened instead of reading this work. It helped to return to certain spots over and over until I could understand what he was saying.

    "Lead by Love"

    Timeless and profound are the words, so much so, one desires the written word so as to slowly savour in contemplation and repeatedly digest each syllable to remove every spiritual nutrient.
