The Living Flame of Love: Study Edition

The Living Flame of Love: Study Edition

Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD

St. John of the Cross described the stanzas of his poem, The Living Flame of Love, as the “songs of the soul in the intimate communication of the union of love with God.” The verses capture the mystical vistas from the summit of the saint’s spiritual journey, describing the mystery and powerful experience of divine transformation as the soul encounters and unites with the pure love of God. Later, St. John of the Cross wrote a prose commentary to accompany his poem that represents his final word on the journey of the soul’s transformation toward union with God. In these verses and commentary, our saintly guide teaches us as the “Mystical Doctor of the Church,” but also as a gentle pastor.

Rooted in Love: Louis and Zélie Martin: Models of Married Love, Family Life, and Everyday Holiness

Rooted in Love: Louis and Zélie Martin: Models of Married Love, Family Life, and Everyday Holiness

Annette Goulden

When Sts. Louis and Zélie Martin were canonized in 2015, they were the first spouses to be declared saints as a couple. Their lives are proof that God works through ordinary families to draw his future saints—like St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Louis and Zélie’s youngest daughter—toward holiness. Even before their first encounter in the small town of Alençon, France, God was preparing Louis and Zélie for marriage. Later, he continued to sustain them powerfully in their married love and family life.
