A Prayer of John of the Cross

John of the Cross.jpg

O living flame of love,
that wounds my soul so tenderly
in its deepest center;
Since by your grace
I can endure your touch,
perfect your work in me
according to your will.

By St. John of the Cross, Carmelite priest, poet, and mystical theologian.
